I have my wife onboard to allow me to get a Lotus as a third vehicle. I have been doing my homework online but I really need to know the cost of maintaining a Lotus please anyone.

This question is asked about three times a week. I would do some searching but in short it is very cheap.

I have had the car for about a year now and if you do your own oil (which is barly harder than a normal car) it costs practically nothing. The only maintience thing that takes up my money is tires.

Everything except the body is relativly cheap to replace on this car.

if you can change your own oil/brakes/etc then its not much more than a toyota celica... until someone backs into your car

The trunk doubles up as a baby bathtub if you're not careful hosing.

Your wife wouldn't be able to nag you riding shotgun (which is good for you but not for her).

Welcome.

But you failed the first qualification of Lotus ownership. If you have to ask the wife, are you man enough for a Lotus?
