    Red face Spending spree

    Does anyone else just, for no particular reason, go on a spending spree?

    I've just been to Vauxhall and Bought :-

    5l of 10w40
    1 x Oil filter Element
    4 x Spark plug's
    2l of 75w90 Gearbox Oil
    1 x Diff cover gasket
    Set of the new flatblade wipers

    That little lot should have cost me £67 but i used my trade card and got it for £49.55

    Then i popped to Halfwits and bought a wee 1.5 ton bottle Jack, cost me £10 then i spotted the mother of all Torque Wrenches, this should have cost me £60 but through a mistake i got it for £36, it should have been £46 on my trade card

    Then when i got home i was having a look on detailing world and i decided, sod it, i'm going to buy a PC so... i did

    This cost me £110

    So all in all i spent a bit of cash, so much for just "popping out to get some roll's"...lol

    Anybody else been on a shopping spree latley?

    I've abused ma credit card recently.
    First, a Pipercross, which is on,
    then a set of Irmy rear clusters, which came today and i just fitted half an hour ago,
    and still waiting on the Dump valve and boost pipe arriving from Courtenay. All in all, it's been about £350 in about 4 days!
