Hi there, I just thought I would throw this past you....in part, to shock myself. Since I purchased my 1.8T W reg last july, with 37k, mint interior, exterior a year's warranty etc) for 5k , I have spent 6405.72 pounds on her!! This is all receipts, including car cleaning products (yes I keep them all). You may be shocked to know that the car has had only two large aesthetic purchases (a upgraded fog light kit, and an armrest from vagparts, total 450). The rest has went on a refurbed tranny for 1500, stupid trips to Audi, and the rest is on servicing - these were not at Audi. The car now has 71k on the clock. Admitedly some of this (about 2k) was stupidity on my part for taking the car to Audi, but if I have time I will do full breakdown to let you see where the hell it went. Ps: this does not include car hire, while the car sat in Audi for 10 days, nor does it include a new bumper which was paid under insurance, nor does it include the new injector amplifier that Audi took 10 days to discover paid for under warranty.
