Default How much MOOLA have you invested/spent on Your PT

Sadly,
I went through my records today.
I did NOT count Oil Changes or Tire Rotates, as they are regular maintenance:
I did 3 categories

1. Needed Maintenance: i.e.; tires, brakes, wear and tear items
2. Repairs: unexpected, etc
3. Modifications


I bought in 2004, a new 2005 Limited Turbo PT.

So for me, AGAIN sadly, I have spent in total almost half the cost of my car in all 3 categories in total.

1:
2 sets of Brakes: one set stock replacements, one set ceramic replacements for font
2 sets of Tires: one set of tires stock replacement, one set upgraded high grade Goodyear Triple Treads
MAJOR preventative service at 45,000 miles: every flush known to man, plus new plugs, etc...
TOTAL: $3,537

2:
Rack and Pinion - comped by Chrysler with $150 deductible
Serpentine Belt - $150
A/C not blowing cold - comped by dealer
MAP Sensor and Coil Pack, New Plugs(again) and Wires - $545
Wiper Blade hose replacement $70
CAMShaft Position Sensor replacement $167
Right lower Motor Mount $235
TOTAL: $1,440

3:
Mopar Cold Air Intake
Rear Roll Pan
Cadillac Tail Lights
Custom hatch artwork
15" Baby Moons with Painted Purple centers
Cat back hidden single exhaust
Rear only 2" drop
TOTAL: $2,400

Grand Flippin Total:
$7,377

Without counting accidents, I will say I am very close to $7000. WITH the accidents it would be around $13000. That kid took out my whole rear right side and needless to say, it was not cheap for him!

4 tires, $260, 2 headlight bulbs $30, some wipers $40, rotors and pads $120, and $200 something for the Magna Flow catback. Oh yeah, $60 for a battery. I think I have 52,000m on it.
