Since I'm Irish, prices are in Yo-Yo's.

€500 on new altenator (refurb and includes fitting)
€175 on new front drivers window regulator (+€40 to supplement my small tool kit to do the job myself)
€225 on 9000ml service (got oil and tranny fluid changed at garage - price includes purchase of new plugs, air filter, and fluids which i changed/checked myself)

Upcoming costs :
€700 probably for timing belt and water pump to be done. Probably going to Renault to do this.
€TBA on tyre pressure sensor check/renewal on front offside. Keeps losing pressure, but too slow for a slow puncture. Will go from 29psi to 24 over 2 week period. Doesn't seem to register low pressure until around 24psi.

Luxury items that should not be included in maintenance costs :-
€470 on new radio. Price includes new iPod for music on the move and all cables required to maintain steering wheel controls. Fitted myself.
€40 on digital tyre inflator.
