    How much have you spent on your car?

    I was in halfords last night and got talking to this guy whos' corsa had been on total vauxhall, and previously to him buying it, been in redline (i think he said) and we were chatting away, my girlfriend calling him a plonker when he said he'd spent 15 grand on it lol and saying 'ooo I hope you arent one of the boy racer idiots who has bass pumping out at 11pm at night' etc and just wondered - how much has everyone spent on their cars? (not including the actual car itself)

    Couldn't tell you...

    My ICE changes like my socks... monthly

    but the rest is less frequent, luckily i've got most of mine on the cheap.

    I'd be scared if I've spent £15000 on it though. probably nearer 3 or 4

    Well just having the repairs on mine and new wheels cost just over £2k (wheels & tyres were most of that)

    But sorting out a new alarm so add that to the price as well.

    Ask Rob about the rest lol.
    No more Astra..........Now another German!

    I just totalled it up, I’ve spent £2320 on mods so far! Quite surprised didn’t think it was as much as that as I got a lot of discounts buying stuff on here and getting friends to do good discounts with spraying etc..

    Spent between £7-8k on my GSi, about £2k on tuning and messing with the mini before killing it, then about £300 on the Leon so far, with about another £2-3k in progress.
