I disagree. I see my car as an investment to myself. I enjoy it, and even if I put another $10k into it making it the car I dream of, it's still an investment in my personal entertainment.

i posted this in the 99-04 section thread, and decided to figure it out and make a spread sheet. Damn that is depressing.
$12,000 into it. Car was 6000 for 24K mile car.

I should have bought a cobra, lol
I didn't realize how much money i've spent on stuff other than the turbo build, lol

+ a few hundred in oil, maintenance items, etc

I honestly wish that wasn't the case.

You hear all these things about owning a supercar/exotic and how expense they are to maintain. This car isn't bad at all to maintain. They neglect to mention the modding monies you'll spend
