234567

It's an unassuming number, digits in order and all that.

On an older car you would see it at 23,456.7 miles and probably not again as you'd have to go another 100,000 miles for the mechanical odometer to reset.

On a new car with a digital odometer, it represents 234,567 miles - a number that most people will not see even once.

This afternoon I saw 234,567 on my Passat's odometer.

It's taken me just over 10.5 years to see it.

I still love the car.
