Just wanted to update this thread. My G now has 156K miles and I just changed the brake, differential, power steering, transmission fluids, coolant and drive belts and am getting new Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (V-Speed Rated). I also had the value gasket fixed, which was leaking oil. I didn't do any of this at a dealership.

I should be good for a few years. Thanks for everyone's help and advice!

I've owned my 2003 6mt sedan since 2007 bought it with 49k miles.
Car now has 328k miles with original spark plugs and clutch.
Car still gets 25mpg.
Oil changed every 8k miles.
I drive it 1000 miles per week.
I've had to replace all wheel bearings and brake calipers.
Not bad for 280k

Jezebel, a 2011 G37x, has just over 70K and runs like 2014, about 5.3 0-60. Might be my last car.

The length of a car depends upon the maintenance. I have a QX4 that well over 202k miles on it. I've done some preventative maintenance on it (fluids, filters, plugs, timing belt, pulleys, drive belts, shocks, struts, bushings, water pump, brakes, cam seals, etc.) and I've done some repairs (distributor, alternator). I've been running all synthetic fluids (oil, trans fluid, diff, steering rack, CV axles, etc.) for 10 years. Maintenance and repairs are just part of owning a car IMO. She still cranks the first time. :)
