Iono if this is accurate but if you replace clutch or rotors, it would go up considerably.
Thanks for the info, which was exactly what I was looking for....basically, compared with any car I'm looking to buy, i can reconcile to deduct about $1600-1800 in maintenance costs when looking into the 135.....

Isnt there a big 15k maintenance whereby they do more than the standard oil change?

so the 135 @ 40k is actually costing me $38,400
