Please post a breakdown/list (if you are comfortable). I'm sure other owners/soon to be owners would appreciate it as they can see what was necessary v. optional/cosmetic/upgrades.

Here's mine, few things missing, but probably reasonably close to everything. Total cost of maintenance and misc., not counting purchase of the car is about $10k since 10/07. Haven't had to install the clutch yet, haven't put in the aux. cooling fan or fog lights either.

  • $ 200 on audio upgrades (BM53 swap/upgrade, CD changer upgrade)
  • $ 50 on KBus interface
  • $ 50 on OBD-II to USB interface
  • $ 100 brake fluid change/flush to prep for track day
  • $ 100 BMW CCA membership 2 years
  • $ 200 NEOCCA track day event
  • $ 200 Safety gear for track day event
  • $ 900 new Michelin Pilot A/S (set of 4)
  • $ 700 new M-Parallel replicas to mount the A/S's on
  • $ 200 in Adams Detail Spray, Glaze, etc.
  • $ 100 in paint repair kit, brushes, etc.
  • $ 50 in micro-fiber towels
  • $1200 in storage fees over winter 2 years
For a total of about $5000 in 2 years... but the killer is the 2 1/2 car 600 sq-ft garage in my back yard that I'm now having built to get rid of the storage fees ouich $12,000

Actually I don't feel too bad about this, considering the fun I've had owning this car! :cheers:

Just over 2 years of ownership, I keep a list of everything spent, except fuel, total so far to the end of Jan, including purchase price, just under £50K for 32K miles. Work being done this Feb, about £10k.

New garage to keep the beast in (and a few other things!), due to start this summer, total floor area about 115 sq-m (1,200 sq-ft), not sure yet but I think you could change the $ to £ and put a 0 on to crds's garage cost!

Go on, add it up, I dare you! :)
Petrol : £7000 to £9500 per annum (I get 135 to 145 miles (£94) on a full tank in London, and I am 95% always in Central London)
Secure Parking : £2600 per annum
Insurance : £800 to £1000 per annum
Car Wash : £600 per annum

So £12,350 per annum (£1029 per month) before even considering looking at maintenance, replacement parts, labour and performance modifications......

For anual costs I recon

£3800 on fuel (roughly, 15,000 miles @ 23 mpg @ £5.90/gallon £1.30/litre)
£800 insurance
£0 on Parking :)
£500 for detail 2 times a year, day to day wash I do myself.

So 'only' £5100 a year.
