Although the prevailing theory on BMW models is that they can be a little pricey to maintain, some BMW owners maintain them nonetheless -- throughout many years and many thousands of miles. Here's some proof: five of the highest-mileage BMW models currently listed for sale on Autotrader, all of which have traveled massive distances for any car, let alone a BMW.

Highest Overall Mileage: 1986 BMW 535i - 563,000 Miles

Highest Overall Mileage: 1986 BMW 535i - 563,000 Miles

The highest-mileage BMW overall is this 1986 BMW 535i, which is listed with a truly amazing 563,000 miles. Offered by a private seller in Finksburg, Maryland, this 535i has had just two owners, as the ad says the current owner bought it from the original owner in 1996. The car has taken on some rust and it has a few issues, as noted in the ad, and as one might expect for a vehicle that's traveled this far -- but it also seems well-loved and maintained. It's listed for $7,500.

Highest-Mileage BMW Convertible: 1988 BMW 3 Series - 355,000 Miles

Highest-Mileage BMW Convertible: 1988 BMW 3 Series - 355,000 Miles

The highest-mileage BMW convertible is the 1988 E30 3 Series Cabriolet, which has traveled a whopping 355,000 miles. Offered by LMJ Auto Motors Sales in San Antonio, Texas, this 325i is finished in black with a black interior, and it has a manual transmission. The mileage number is quite impressive for any BMW, though the 3 Series from this era is known to be fairly reliable -- and it's currently listed for $4,000.

Highest-Mileage BMW SUV: 2004 BMW X5 - 282,000 Miles

Highest-Mileage BMW SUV: 2004 BMW X5 - 282,000 Miles

The highest-mileage BMW SUV on the market today is this 2004 X5 that's traveled 282,000 miles from new. Offered by a private seller in Valparaiso, Indiana, this X5 is finished in silver with a black interior, and the ad notes that it "needs some repairs" -- as you might expect from a vehicle of this age and mileage -- though it also includes a host of new parts, like brakes, a water pump, a radiator and more. This X5 is listed for $4,500.

Highest-Mileage M Car: 1996 BMW M3 - 280,000 Miles

Highest-Mileage M Car: 1996 BMW M3 - 280,000 Miles

This is the highest-mileage BMW M car currently listed for sale on Autotrader -- a 1996 model that's traveled 280,000 miles from new. It's an E36 M3 Coupe, and it boasts a desirable manual transmission, along with a black interior and exterior. Despite the high mileage, manual M3 coupes are highly desirable, so this one is still listed for an asking price of $8,000 -- and it's offered for sale by a private seller in Millbrae, California, in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Highest-Mileage BMW M5: 2003 BMW M5 - 207,000 Miles

Highest-Mileage BMW M5: 2003 BMW M5 - 207,000 Miles

This is the highest-mileage BMW M5 currently listed for sale on Autotrader -- and it's quite impressive. It's a 2003 M5, meaning it's the "E39" M5 model that's become so desirable to enthusiasts in recent years -- and it looks like it's in nice shape, with a black exterior and a gorgeous "Caramel" interior that's been well kept (considering the mileage). But this car has traveled a whopping 207,000 miles, and it's currently listed for sale by a private seller in Fulton, Maryland, for $9,900, making it one of the cheapest E39 M5 models available in the country.
