I've owned my 2006 MX-5 for over 5 years now, and have prepared it for SCCA C Street Prepared autocross competition. While ordering some more stuff from GWR today, I looked at my account and decided to add up all my orders...big mistake.
I've spent nearly $15k on mods for my car with Brian alone - several sets of Enkei wheels are the biggest culprits (5 and counting), plus a Racing Brake BBK, full exhaust, etc.
I haven't even done any work on the inside of the engine! I do have a spare motor and 5-speed tranny I haven't installed yet, and ordered more stuff today for the install after Nats.
The annual tire bill for autocrossing is also outrageous - I purchase at least 2 sets of Hoosier tires each year, sometimes 3 sets (at around $1500/set) to keep up with my addiction.
Stupid calculator...the numbers MUST be wrong.
My only solice is that Cyberbug has spent more than me.
Don't tell my wife...
