Swedish bricks are nearly indestructible. We have a 1987 240 (non turbo) with 400K+ miles on the engine, its never even had the valve cover taken off. Original owners, has survived our babysitters, au pairs, teenage son learning to drive, and is now my teenage daughter's car.

The engine above is my 1992 740 Turbo wagon, which has about 220K miles, but has had a head gasket replacement (needed it when I bought it, so I got it really cheap).




that car will probably outlast me.
