I have had my 328i for less then 3 months, with 8k miles already and I haven't nearly accumulated as many bills.
Gas - Approx $40 per week (600miles)
Oil Change Free (Not done yet)
Car wash $100.00 (wash it yourself)
Maquires Stuff $0.00
Cotton Cloths $10.00 (Chamois)
Brake Dust Removal $0.00 (no problems) Why was yours not covered by warranty?
Msg Board viewing $0.00 (About the same, but I get my work done)
I believe that you need to keep a car clean and well maintance, but that is just crazy. Are you waxing your car weekly? Don't you have a garage to park it in? I don't have money to throw away like that, wish I did. I would spend it elsewhere.
Where do you live? Does it rain a lot?
