    Default Whos spent the most on there car....

    A comment on a thread on here about the GTR and how if you can afford to spend that on car you can afford the repairs got me thinking.

    The GTR is a 50K car, but it wouldnt surprise me if some have spent that on there vecs \ signums. 30K for a fully speced up VXR and then all the mods people do etc etc.

    So was wondering who had spent most and if they are prepared to say just how much?

    Probably a fair bit on mine, but I don't think it's right to state a figure.

    Both are fair enough comments, and I fully understand why people might not want to give figures. I just always think it is odd that people say I would never spend X amount on a car but the same person will then spend more than that modifying it. Don’t get me wrong I’m just as bad and it means you get to personalise your vehicle how you want it. I think it was just the comment the other day that made me really think about it.

    i've got a customer at work spent in excess of 17,000 on repairs to his 306cc

    he could have bought a brand new 307/8cc for the money he's spent on repairs.. but he loves it too much to part with it

    and therein lies the passion that most members have on here - money no object (within reason) to keep their pride and joy running and looking the best they can

    My car cost me £6995, I've currently got receipts for over 10k but I've also had a lot of cash in hand work done as well, plus now I'm doing the engine conversion.

    I'm in the process of spending quite a bit on mine, but I tend to only do these things if I can sell whatever bits I'm replacing to cover some, if not all, of the cost of the mod itself...

    I've just been complaining to a mate coz i've spent £800 on my vectra this month. I rather drive cars than plough money into them. My motto is "if it doesn't make it faster i don't buy it". It saves me a fortune in putting big wheels and bodykits on it to make it into something it isn't.

    I do mine cos I like to have something no one else has, I don't drink or smoke or lead a normal life so my habit is my car, yes I could get rid and go for the VXR etc but wheres the fun in that when I can create something special running 350bhp + lol

    Think I'm too attached to my car after 2 years 8 months now
