Twelve months on
« on: 11 August 2014, 00:31:29 »

It's now been twelve months since I bought the lexus.

18,000 miles done

service items:140 (oil/filters) transmission fluid - 60.

new battery:45
Tyre: 60

other costs: brake light bulb : 2 (must have been a dodgy batch, cos original only lasted 16 years!)

on top of the 600 I paid for it.

in related news, my 6 pts come off in september, and my insurance drops from 1100 quid to 500  :)

Garage local  to us has an LS 430 for sale. Nice car but ugly as sin. It even makes an Insignia look half decent. ;D

You could be right, Mr Emd.

The Insignia is a real 'minger' :-\

I find it hard to believe that Vauxhall signed it off as finished and fit for purpose.

It's a shame they never made an estate version of the 400. That would be a beast and I'd have one!  :y

Key cost really...

Depreciation = 0

Easily see 500 to 5,000 depending on the car per year!
