206,000 on my 2008 GT. I have not done any drivetrain mods, since this is my primary work vehicle. Through the life of the car, I have replaced:

Shocks and struts with TEIN Basic coilovers (that currently need replaced)
I run DBS Rotors with Hawk pads
power steering pump
timing belt (twice) with a tensioner pulley replacement this last time

Other than normal maintenance items (wipers, headlights, tires), that is about it on the replacements. I change oil religiously every 5,000 miles with Schaeffer 9000 full synthetic. I am still running the original turbo. Would I say it has the same "snap" as it did at 10,000 miles? No, it has lost a step, as they say, but it is still fun to drive. I get about 26-28 mpg depending on foot heaviness. Anyone getting more/less?
