Johnz826 urs gave out that soon? mine finally gave at 180k but it was about time. Good point to bring up about the alternator, cuz that can be a pain if they go on u while ur driven, happened to me barely made it home.

Tweek's Turbos Did they swap over your engine accesories or use the one from the other engine.

Point being, my Alternator went at about 120k miles. Be ready for it.

Johnz826 Then u should be in good shape for right now the way it sounds. But wat about a radiator flush? most people over look that and it is pretty important, cuz its do a major part by keepin the engine cool. Get that flushed so that sludge doesn't start to buil up, and u can do that once a year. Other then that jus keep up wit her the way ur doin it and u won't any major problems. Promise.

soccerrplyr Synthentics been done for the past 2 years, auto fluid changesd 25k ago, sparks less than a year, gapped 4 weeks ago, front brakes/rotors changed 2 weeks ago, rears look ok and ebrake works well.. no sicking or anything, air filter 1 year old, fuel filler 1 year, di 1 year old,

Johnz826 Well if ur not on syntehtic u might as well switch it to that. Manual tran.fluid should be changed at about 100k. Get new spark plugs, check timing, radiator flush, brakes check especially e-barke, air filter, and you should be good from there.

120,000 service soon up

My 99 9-3 will soon reach the 120,000 mark, but the engine itself only has 80k because the old one had sludge issues and I replaced it 2 yrs ago. Anyway, what should should be looked over and changed at this point, engine and mechanically wise.
