How much $$ have you spent on your car to date?

I want to see some of your lists, some of you probably have some shocking numbers. I don't, though.

This is including your car BTW.

Car: 8,000 (Took it off my mom's hands because she never used it )
OEM Clears: 310
OEM Floor Mats: 20

Total: $8,630
