$10K over the purchase price, car has been on the road two out of six months of ownership. Fortunately the car came with some good bits (brakes, exhaust, Power FC), but I still had to go for a complete engine makeover, clutch, tires, etc. I'm now down to just needing a set of spark plugs that won't blow out at 1.4bar boost, and some subwoofers.

Had mine for nearly 2 years ,apart from services down to Abbey every September not spent much on this one at all ,just cosmetic. MOT and 2 new Bridgestones on the back. She is in at the bodyshop at the moment just having a freshen up of paint on the front bumper from small stone chips .Probebly my most reliable car and not cost me a fortune either ,it's not a daily driver though .
