    Extravagant purchase

    As the title says what extravagant purchases have you made?

    I'm not talking about your cars, alloys, big turbo conversations etc as I would deem these essentials

    Should make interesting reading

    Married and blonde yes, but still a guy with a poor taste in usernames!

    Mercedes Benze E-class 350 sport convertable, black, pacha grey leather, 19" AMG rims, HK stero and a few more toys
    VW Scirocco 2.0Tsi GT with Revo stage 2, evoms induction kit, lowered, short shift, miltek
    BMW 330 Coupe M sport Black, Black leather, Nav and a lot of other options.
    BMW Z4 Coupe Sport in black with a few toys - going friday and gonna be missed by my lad.

    God I must be the only one without a decent sized LCD or plasma! I've got a 20" on the wall in the dining room and another in the bedroom. I want to get a plasma but Claire wants to move so I am worried that I'll get one now and in 6-12months time will move to bigger pad and need a bigger screen to fill the lounge...

    Ok the reason for the post was because I went shopping for a new pair of shoes for my little boy (his feet hadn't grown so didn't need any). Opposite the shoe shop is a bang and olufsen shop, against my better judgement I decided to pop in for a little look around thinking having sam in my arms (he's only 16 months old) would stop me really paying too much attention. I left the shop 5 minutes later... I bought myself a new mobile phone...

    In the last year, I have treated myself to an Omega Speedmaster watch as I've always wanted one. And for the household, I purchased a Panasonic 42" Plasma.

    My next extravagant purchase is going to be a Nintendo Wii, sick of going to friends and families places to play on one, just got to wait for my local Argos to get some in stock first.

    Just wanted to add that some things are extravagant to some people, some are not, Nintendo Wii's @180 are dirt cheap compared to PS3 and Xbox360, but it's fun, and my kid will love it!

    In terms of income Vs expenditure I probably spent more when I was student than my working life. Most of my money went towards computer hardware.

    1300 on a brand new laptop. 133Mhz pentium 1 with 16MB RAM, massive 1.4GB hard drive.

    200 just for the 4x CDROM drive docking station for above. All weighed around 5kg.

    Amiga A4000/040 computer (top of the range). The circuit board got fried after a few years so I ended up spending another 400 on a replacement motherboard!

    A 14" PAL monitor + 9" (yes nine inch) monitor which I hardly used.

    2 x external Amiga floppy disk drives. 100 each.

    2 x 4MB 72pin SIMMS, approx 120 each.

    External SCSI mini tower case + 4GB SCSI DAT drive + CDROM
