    yep... sorting a 'new' car can be costly, especially if you're anal.

    i've put $7K into my car in the last 26 months. i think $400 of that was labor.

    So far, $0.00 dollars spent on Labor!!!!! Very proud of this

    Looking back on what I have done so far, which is quiet a lot, I could have easily spent a few thousand on labor.

    Only labor costs will be associated with wheels / tires / alignment. Maybe some with suspension too. Starting to get out of my comfort zone with these items.

    No residue on the floor. Dipstick was reading very low though.

    I figured by process of elimination that it was the Oil Pan Gasket. Just replaced OFHG, replaced all of the CCV system, and the Vanos return line wasn't leaking or dripping. Verified by taking the plastic under tray out. And I just got all those stupid screw clippy things and zip tips back in to hold it in place a weekend ago.

    i don't count tire mounting or alignment as labor costs, however welding falls into that category - the $400 i mentioned was having my OEM exhaust system welded back together and some stubborn, rusted downpipe studs removed since i couldn't deal with either of those myself.

    yeah, if i paid labor for the work done to my car... dang, it would be around $5K.

    "ZHP is a garbage option anyway- just some cosmetic upgrades with a different cam and diff to claw back some of the performance lost fitting those hideous and heavy wheels. Any 330 with a 3.46 diff will smoke a ZHP every time. The whole Mafia thing reeks of childish behavior." - anonymous
