2008's expenditure total currently stands at 112 quid after having the engine serviced (all filters changed, engine and gearbox oil change) and a replacement TDC fitted after my little power loss issues late last year.

Annual service and MOT still to come

EDIT: Add 135 for a replacement key - had a few problems disarming the immobiliser recently, and it was traced to a crack in the plip's PCB. Currently bodged to stop it flexing as much when the button is pressed, but replacement is kind of essential.

How much have I spent on my Kangoo since buying it?

Ignoring the forecourt price, all I've spent is:

45 on Ebay for a load cover and luggage net
40 (approx) for a pair of Renault shelves for the load cover
9.98 for two pairs of Halfords mudflaps
1.99 for a pine scented air freshner
11.99 for a set of cheapo rubber mats from Aldis
TOTAL 108.96 (I think)

Oh, and 1.99 for the best performance tweak available today ....a RenaultForums sticker.
Currently in chiefkeefe's garage:
Mitsubishi 'i', a Honda Jazz SE Sport, a Honda SH300i scooter, and an MZ TS 250/1 Supa 5. Used to own a Kangoo 1.5dCi
