So I'm pretty much finished with maintenance for now. Learn from my mistake and buy a car with all the maintenance done. It's been about 3 months and I've spent about $10k, mostly on maintenance like Subframe/Vanos.

I have one of these spreadsheets to keep track of all my purchases and maintenance....I don't dare hit the total button.

I've had my Stahlgrau a little over two years and am roughly the same $$$ in.... a chunk of that was the 6spd swap.

Subframe and Rod Bearings this year along with cooling system overhaul.

That being said, whats your build date? 10/02 here, Steel Grey on Dove.... Nice job so far from taking care of the car as priority no 1

Yeah thatís probably my next big job along with rod bearings. My build date is also 10/02! Small world. And yeah maintenance first, especially since Iíll be going to Laguna Seca in a couple weeks!
