Thread: How Much.....

    Eek How Much.....

    I went through my car receipts over the past 5 years to find out how much I have spent on car modifications (includes servicing & tyres).

    The figure was £ 22,114

    - Vectra 1.9 CDti
    - Vectra VXR
    - Fiat 500 1.2
    - Astra 1.4

    That doesnt include sundries like insurance, tax, fuel, vehicle buying and depreciation, polish & cleaning etc...

    Just modifications.....

    Come on then.... how much have you spent. I've added a poll with some levels (just in case your missus is looking)

    and even if that does scares your missus... you add up how much your family food bills have been over the past 5 years and it will probably be more !!!

    have put a "conservative estimate" of £3 - £4k which is a bit depressing when i think about it and what else i could have done with the money.

    this won't include sevicing and tyres so you could add at least another £1k on top

    and this is pretty much all on the Vec

    Oh well never mind

    Thing is... before I did a proper calculation I guessed at around £15k... I was £7k out !!

    Even I started to cringe when I got to £20k.... and kept going....

    You will be amazed how much all the 'little' costs add up... £300 here... £300 there.... lol
