    Ok this should be an interesting thread !

    I'm sure many of the members on here are like me and not entirely truthful about the cost of their car upgrades ?

    So what have you bought and played down the cost to you partner ?

    I will start and bought an Eisennman exhaust for £700 and said it was £80 as it was ex stock !! And a set of AC Schnitzer roll hoops and said I swapped them for black ones !

    Errr and the rest woody100. All mine pale in to insignificance in comparison to those worldies!!!!
    I did once swap a Perspex wind deflector for a simota induction kit from you 'allegedly' despite me actually buying the kit from someone else entirely.
    Bought the strong strut from America £100!! Oooppps really £360
    Hardtop and fitting kit £400 :)
    Z3m mirrors just put them on and never told her!
    My eisenmann was also £80 strangely
    Basically everything I've ever sold has gone for mega money and everything I've ever bought was pretty much free (so she thinks)

    I did point out to Shirl that I have saved almost £300 in postage costs to the UK.

    Nothing!! She knows everything, but she does get a shock occasionally. Mind you she has sometimes gone behind the tree line and found a few cars she didn't know I bought. We'll, maybe more than a few I guess. And then the fight starts!! JIM
