How much do you owe?

Spured on by recent threads about money and Skylines got me wondering.
How much money do you owe to tunning/pampering your car each month on plastic or whatever including any repayments you may have when you bought the car in the first place.
Not interested in names obviously, just numbers.

lol the over 500 catergory is wining.

then again factor in insurance easily 100plus per month uke: makes you sick...

petrol, and other running costs, then there;s any loan payments its a horrifying thought.

think this thread should be censored or removed incase girlfriends / wives see this we could all be in trouble............

I often try to remember what its like in the summer when your out having a good time in the car, makes it all seem worth it then
Mind, when i thought about the poll i didnt think about tax, insurance, petrol, octane booster if you use it and consumables like servicing etc, f***! are we mad??
I just shelled out 1.3k on a bloody garage to put the thing in, got a good deal from a mate so consequently it was cash
From that U.2 track, "not broke yet but you can see the cracks"

Nearer 1000 for me. Though i have stopped buying shiny bits as of this month so my bank balance may look a little healthier.

Imagine how much i would uncontrollably spend if i had a skyline?!!!

Think you should add a zero to each of those numbers, as mine is tame, and ive spent over 500 obviously exculding insurance etc.

Recently had my sensible hat on after paying off my credit card (for the 3rd time), so currently just 200 in the red, but only just breaking even each month (if not worse!)

I am lucky,then.....don't owe any of my 3 liners anything,as I just spend what I earn...not in debt,plastic or otherwise,save the small mortgage.
However,spanked just shy of 5k on my Skylines this year,which does not include buying or insuring them...
So that will be +500 per month,then...!

Crikey, I just added it all up. Only taking into account loan repayments, insurance, fuel and tax. I'm well into the balls of steel catagory. That doesn't even take into account servicing, maitanance, tuning or any others which normally happens every month anyway!
