    Why do you need a thread dedicated to writing essays? If you need to write an essay, find these services online.

    In the last six months for the daily driver e30, $25 for oil and a filter.

    On the e93- over $500 for a battery, hood release cables, misc trim pieces and paint.

    Dumb thread (thanks to the OP), but I'll bite.

    I stopped adding it up years ago. But I was at $15k by 2007. And I've had it almost 20 years now. You can guess if you like!

    Although in the last 5 years I pretty much don't mess with it much, I just drive it. It needs a few things - it's definitely more of a driver than a show car. But I don't spend anything on it other than gas and insurance. It helps that I have a massive hoard of parts!

    I don't worry much about the total cost, and it costs me basically nothing to run these days. Plus, it turns out saving and investing over a long period of time actually does work. ;)

    whatever the market bears. I'm happy knowing that my investment will allow me to daily mine for at least another 20 years. already have my heart set on watching the ticker turn over to 400k sent from hell using Tapatalk

    Welcome to R3V Your car looks great, but I think an eta is merely the intro to E30 ownership and isnt really indicative of the true ownership experience. Your car is nice, but Im guessing yours started at a premium and when looking back at what you've spent $13k on its tough to think its worth holding on to.

    I have no nefarious reasons for starting this thread. One thread has nothing to do with the other.

    Your comment makes no sense. It's easy to tell how much you spent on your car. You just add up the receipts like I did. Ranting about a simple question is unnecessary and bizarre.
    That's a bot you are replying to.

    No, I didn't start this thread to justify my asking price for my car. That was a pretty ignorant thing to write. I started this thread to see if my spending equals others. My selling of my car came weeks after coming to the decision that I wanted to buy a different car. You opinion is not needed and shows your small mindedness,

    what if i told you to spend 10% of your salary on a car...that doesnt mean its financially right...you may have expenses that exceed 90% of your income....so now what?

    what if you spend 10% of your salary on a car......what if you lose your job the next week....how much money do you have in the bank? how long can you float yourself while you look for a new job?

    what if you're straight out of school.....well paying job, no debt, live at home, very little expenses and you can comfortably spend 50% of your income on a car......does that make it right? nope.
