Whats the car cost per month?

I am interested to know what percentage of the monthly wage people spend on the car. Only include car payments, Fuel, Insurance and mods spread equally over 12 months on an average.

then there is also a few hundred on car cleaning, $1200 in rim repair and tyre replacements, over $500 in driving courses, hundreds in drag racing....

Fuel maybe $2,500 - $3,000. Insurance is under $400, I think. No repayments. No mods yet (And none coming, given what I'm presently forking out on Santa's behalf so my kids can have a happy childhood surrounded by every bit of expensive crap on the planet. Do you know what a surfboard costs, for a start? About two bloody Crow cams or a decent set of extractors to be precise. If that fat bastard comes down my chimney while I'm awake in few nights I'll insert a surfboard fair into him and stop this Xmas nonsense for good. Anyone noticed that he and Mrs Claus don't have kids?)

Currently spent the following

Approx $4000 fuel (now running gas est. will cost $2500~$3000)
Insurance $500 (cheaper than our 91 Subaru Liberty!)
Servicing $200 (Do most myself)
Repairs $2700 ( Head Gasket done twice due to shoddy first mechanic)
Mods $1500 (Try fitting 6" splits to the front door of an XG , fun job)

Dont think I want to add this up. Previous job I had a company hack EL, didn't cost a cent for me to run. Cost the company heaps (ran through brakes like no-ones business)
