Could an Audi A4 A6 or A8 go over a Million Miles?

Any thoughts on whether or not a Audi A6, A4 or A8 (or any of the other previous models) could drive over one million miles on the original engine with proper maintence maintained throughout the cars life, garaged and treated well?

Has anyone seen a Lexus with one million miles? Everyone always talks about how reliable and long living the Japan cars are, like Lexus, Toyota & Honda but I personally have not seen any with a million miles. I have seen a Mercedes Benz with over a million miles on the original engine, also a VW and the guy with the record for having the most miles on a car is a guy driving a Volvo from the 1960's.

    The computers and electronics would be the weak spot. Engine and tranny would probably be capable.

    Don't know if ANY car can make it in one piece for a million miles, but refer to post #618 under "Prices Paid" and can describe what happens to an A6 2.7T with 100,000 miles. Be sure and add "front tie rod ends replaced" to the Audi parts replacement list.
