It that white or silver. Silver was not a S color only red, black or white for us.

White. Yes, we got the same three colours here in NZ - though I've never seen a black one in the flesh.

My white 92 is almost exactly the same as this but has the grey bits painted white. (I really liked it back in the early 2000s when I did it but am now wondering whether to go back to grey/original.)

About 39k on the black one (now at 189k) and 36k on the red one (now at 178k)
Still a couple of young bucks.

Bought mine as a sophomore in college in 2008 with 98k. Currently at 165k and going strong! I made sure to take a picture at 164,164! (see attached). I bought an Audi from the same vintage and in one year have spent more than the whole time on the 164. Seems to be a really good car and now I'm selling the V8 Audi and keeping the 164.

I do not have a 164 but, purchased my Milano Verde new in December 1988 and have driven 246,000 miles. I rebuilt the engine at 180,000 miles because I wanted to install 10.0 compression pistons and S cams.
