I don't have a log but, I have every receipt (taillight bulbs included) plus the purchase slip.

I got the White Witch for 15k SAR and I'm now at 57k SAR I swear it looks like a copy of the US tax code sitting on my shelf.

Maybe I should start a new log binder

One more -all in- preventative Maintenance.

VCG
Timing Gasket
I should maybe do the Vanos Seals...but eh, never enough time and I have a post winter/spring garden/pressure wash exterior long list of to dos.

One Cracked AC belt and Pulley

I spy one dry rot hose and I'm sure I'm sure there will be a laundry list once I unbotton more things.

Ha. Maybe I should add this to the current folder I have, but then there will be at least 8 years of missing paperwork as well

CW.....I cannot recall was it this thread or another where you said you have at least 3-5K in PM parts yet to be installed.

Don't be the doofus like I am. I actually threw some new parts away thinking I would never use them. Just ordered one of the parts I threw away.

Eh, what can I say. My OCD cleanliness sometimes get's the best of the PURGE in me

I have parts in storage I've taken off mine. Like the shocks and springs when I upgraded to coil overs. "Just in case".

I have a big box labeled on a shelf so it does not trigger the "purge" valve of my OCD. Have one for each vehicle in the fleet. Red's is the biggest though.

It's not quite that much $$$ in uninstalled parts. About $1000 (out of $7255 total maintenance parts ordered for Red) consisting mostly of VSS parts and a complete cooling system. I'll get around to it all one day... one day...

updated my cost list for the X5 yesterday as I had a service done with (knock on wood) a fix that should finish off my coolant woes and a skid plate that came loose during a top-speed test

anyway... I spent more on maintenance than the car itself now... we're 16 months in

good thing it's tax deductible

Just wait till you do the math after 16 *years* at the wheel of an E53. OverBoost has the best plan.

It's only "abuse" if you spill your drink...

I have receipts for everything I have spent since 4.6 was new. Much of it are mods. I am never never never going to add it all up.
