(a couple of 2" patches of welding and a couple of bulbs, plus an exhaust i knew about when I bought it and 3 tyres, but they're consumables to me).
Well, some might not agree about the patches but anyone who doesn't regard exhaust, bulbs and tyres as consumables (and some don't
) is living in Cloud-Cuckoo-Land
I don't understand why people don't see the economic benefit of running a well-cared-for, quality, older car over running a brand new one that costs a fortune in depreciation and the dealer-servicing the manufacturer insists on to maintain the warranty.
I've probably got the oldest car in the street in my C900 and I don't think any of my neighbours has anything older than my 9000 CSE but they still appear to regard it as a "nice" car. I wouldn't trade it in for something newer just because of what anyone else might think...
The CSE has done 195K miles, the 900 200K and the 9000 Aero 216K.
