Just out of interest, I want to see how much people have spent on their car over the days/weeks/months or even years of owning them.

Just a quick questionnaire as such for you to fill out to see what you have spent on your car.

Initial cost of car

Insurance yearly prices e.g. first year of insurance to current year

Modification costs from day one, how much you have spent changing it

MOT Repairs if any, what repairs and how much it cost to repair

Any other costs any other costs you can think of

Just copy the questions and fill them out and post :D

I have just worked out that between insurance, Corsa and MX5, I have spent £8K on cars since is was 17. I'm 19. That doesn't account for the petrol, which I'm owed a good 15k miles worth. Fuuuuuuuuuck!


Still, money well spent imo

That's without £3k on fuel, tax, mots, so I'm looking at £11k.
73p/mile. lol

Initial cost of car
£7000 - 9 months old in March 2002

Insurance yearly prices e.g. first year of insurance to current year
11 years at about £130 a year = 1430


Modification costs from day one, how much you have spent changing it
£0 - I don't modify them

MOT Repairs if any, what repairs and how much it cost to repair
Front & rear spings, rear rose bushes - off the top of my head about £200 in all for parts.

Any other costs any other costs you can think of
Replaced the timing chains at 96k just to be on the safe side - £280 for genuine GM chains.

Other than that just routine servicing every 10k with an oil / filter every 5k - over the past 125k it's run with only one minor issue - a wiring break on the intake air temp sensor.

25 x oil/filter (c £11 a shot = £275)
3 x spark plugs = £45
12 x filter sets = £300
16 tyres = £1120
1 exhaust = £150
2 x front discs = £120
Brake pads, fluid = £80
Transmission fluid / antifreeze = £30

Road tax - always going up :mad: - spent just over £2500

So over 11 years and 125k miles:
Road tax £2500
Basic Servicing & repairs £2600
Insurance £1500
Plus fuel - I reckon I've used about 3500 gallons - roughly about £14,000 given the average price per gallon over that period

Total cost over 125k = £27,600 = 22p per mile :thumbs_up:
