Default New Buyers please read.

This might make me look completely stupid, but that happens daily anyway. Here is a list of all of the parts and prices I have put into my car since I bought it in 2011. I took out the purchase price of the car and the $ I spent for the 6SP transmission because it wasn't NECESSARY. All the other parts I replaced because I felt they needed it. I bought the car as a project with 175K miles and I got one. I have enjoyed every minute, I have the skills and the financial wherewithal to be able to do this without much pain. The car was one similar to the $4K cars we have been getting queried about recently. This is essentially a rolling restoration and I am basically finished with the mechanicals and ready to start on the cosmetics. The bottom line is nearly 13K in parts and I do ALL my own work. I could probably have avoided half of this by buying a better condition car, or just living with broken crap. Labor would have been NUTS!

Craig,
Great post! This should be in every prospective buyer's reference binder. Seems like the old adage about buying a $20k car one way or the other, is more true than ever. You did it right!

Forget about it, if I added up my book of receipts over the past 2 years alone I'd hang myself. People think this is a budget M3 based on the low cost of entry. Good luck.

I've split my spreadsheet into a couple of pages such as "maintenance", "major", and "optional"...that way when I add something to it, I don't see the actually TOTAL.

I forgot the most important part. My wife totally ROCKS. She just shakes her head a bit when she sees another box from Pelican arrive and I head to the garage! She almost understands why I would drive a 20 year old car when I could pretty much drive anything I want. I have told her she should be ecstatic that I am not always interested in trading in for newer models!

Yeah, I usually don't look at this report either...

I paid a little over twice as much as you at startup and have spent about half of what you have on maintenance to get my car close to mechanically perfect if that's helpful to the new guys.

Really cool how you kept track of everything, I stopped after 10k on my other car. Just made me sad! Maybe next time I am in Tucson for work I can check out your M3!

One of the reason I use Pelican for most things is that they give really good invoices and I wrote some code to transform them into my record tracking system.
