The amount of money I've spent is about what you've spent in the 16 months I have owned my car.

I haven't broken apart the really necessary maintenance and repair expenses from the "unnecessary" expenses (new wheels, shift knob, steering wheel, euro headlights, window tint, high-end audio equipment, bumper respray, etc.).

The two categories of expenses total almost $12,500!!!

I only paid $9,500 for the car, so it was a steal.

But, I have to tell you, at the end of the day, the car is so clean and immaculate it takes your breath away. It not only looks like a brand new car, it runs flawlessly.

And I love it. I can't imagine driving anything else.
