Re: Since you bought your GTV/Spider, how much per day in repairs have you paid?
Over 4 years I've put £100 away every month, and on average it's covered me for most things;
3 cambelts, 1 variator (1 month after the first cambelt, which was over-tightened, hence the second cambelt), 8 tyres, wheel alignment, a new clutch (thrust bearing drove me nuts), front and rear disks and pads, general servicing, a thermostat, a fusebox, brake reservoir (switch went) and the obligatory oil. Oh, and a battery early this year. And the alarm module a few weeks later.
And I still claim it's reliable enough! Says a lot for the car I guess.
