Repairs alone?

6 tyres @ 60 each.

That's it in 14 months of ownership.

All the other stuff is just what I wanted to add or replace, but not because I had to.

Member car:

2003 Spider JTS

Purchased on the 6th February 09. To date Spent $38.91/18.99 Per day in repairs.

Plus on top of that, I just got my car back after a new gearbox and clutch installed, and the clutch bearing is busted so they that will be another $800 including labour and parts.....GRRRRRR

I have not spent a penny I have put in a few hours of spanner work myself though in just checking it over etc

I gambled and bought a crash damaged repaired, no history V6 on a 99' plate and have not looked back but a cambelt service is due as I am at 64k with no proof that it was done - it has a sticker on the cambelt cover saying changed at 51k - but god knows!
