Hi there,
Just helped my son by a 94K example on a 11 plate. Had to choose between lower mileage (45k) on 06 or 07 plate or a newer high miler. Reading about the reliable high milers on here is good news.
After giving it a good checkover it appears to have had front wheel bearings and/or drive shafts replaced, probable replacement track rod ends, recent pads on discs with plenty of life left, shoes about half way through their life on drums with little wear but lots of external rust, clutch with a high biting point that hopefully just needs the cable slackened off, an exhaust that has lost a bracket through rust, a gear change that isn't too vague, some engine rattle, but drives sweetly enough at 60 to 70 mph during a 50 mile journey recently. Some road noise from the rear. Removing the slack out of the accelerator cable has improved the drive-ability markedly. He is now using it daily for the drive to work.
Oil and filter change this weekend and an attempt (it has aircon) to reach the clutch cable adjuster. Greasing the gear change mechanism at both ends will also be done. This can dramatically improve things on some types of car. Must check gearbox oil level and spark plugs (whatever they are), too.
Hope we made the right choice.
Cheers.

Mine has A/C also l found it a little easier to reach the clutch adjuster, when l pulled the 2 pins out of the selector cables and took them of their little shafts.
Still a pig of a job though and l have small hands.

Wow. 330,00km (205,000 miles) is a lot of milage.
Are you going to dismantle the old engine to find the problem with burning oil? Would be good to know as mine also burns oil. Pretty sure mine is just stuck/blocked oil control rings as compression is still good.

Please keep us updated with the replacement engine swap as I may have to do this in the future. :)

Mates just had to scrap his 2002 Smart car at just over 100,000 miles due to the clutch and/or gearbox going. Not a great loss as it was 16 years old and not in the best condition. It had bad rust on the roof, a tear in the rear window area of the cabrio roof and a crack on the rear plastic panel. Pretty tatty really, inside wasn't much better.

It's good to see some good mileages on these cars.

Our 2007 107 is approaching 82,000 miles, likes a drink of oil now but is still going well :) (fingers crossed)

I work in the trade and see a few old c1s // 107s etc coming in as trade ins...you sell relatively low mileage ones that have not been cared for and high mile ones that seem to be ok.

Sadly the most recent high miles one i saw (150kish miles) was really, really tired and not long for this world, i fear.
