    I've only had mine a few weeks now really ... and don't even want to know how much I've spent on the car.

    Ouch.

    I'm talking gas ... oil ... parts ... time spent and even cleaning agents!

    It's an investment with no returns, but sure as hell fun to spend money on! :D

    short list so far, but for owning the car less than 2 months, it's kind of sad

    $175 for tint
    $50 for grill delete
    $200 for rear seat delete
    possibly another 100 for a used tri-ax
    ~$500 for a cat-back in a week or so

    at the moment I've spent $425, with $1025 estimated in the next week.
