having taken stock of 2 parcels today ready for my garage visit wednesday, i added my parts reciepts to the mountain of paperwork history that came with my car. i flicked through a few of the bills and then realised that i had in my hand over £14k worth of bills, service reciepts and some for big figures.
My biggest bill was on a diff failure rebuild on my previous v6 totalling £1150. but flicking through the history on my current car its a scary thing.
a few early reciepts for a place called automotive services in dunfermline.
june 04 basic service £460
sept 04 new meta fob £145
jan 05 rear hub discs & pads £260
then it gets costly jan 05 £1900 ( tyres x 4, rear caliper, maf, lambda, service, rear discs pads, plugs, 2x flexis......
may 06 £1000 maf again, spring arms rear x 2 flowmeter??
june 07 £240 wheel bearing ( needs doing again)

april 08 £1150 powerflex rear, split airhose, another maf, another lambda, 60k service.
oct 08 £350 suspect wheel bearing was mis shaped tyres, 2x replaced, front arms and droplinks, cv boot, heat shield,
dec 08 £340 caliper spring, cv boot again
feb 09 £790 belts, tensioners and so on as timing was out (also replaced failed water pump)
all this and minor services 4 sets more of tyres, more alarm fobs, another maf, bulbs, exhausts,

this seams alot of stuff for a 99 t plate with only 70k!!!
