    What's been your most extravagant purchase?

    Most of the time we're all searching for bargains on here, but what was your most outlandish outlay?

    I bought a brand new car when I was 19 (20 years ago) and it took me years to pay it off, doh! I still can't beleive the bank agreed to lend me the money.

    Apart from cars, house or holiday - I think some of the biggest one-off payment purchases have been my Mac laptop about 4 years ago - parted with £1000 cash and then about 6 months ago, a MacBook Air.

    Awesome! A real head turner.

    Seriously, my extravagant purchase today is chips and gravy with little bit salt on.









    Other expensive spending are house, gold, kids school fees. Simple life.

    Had to goto Jim Alan to get it, was hard to find one brand new in stealth black.
    Well chuffed with it apart from the clutch judder although you learn to live with it.
    Cant be arsed changing the washer in the clutch to calm it down.
    Goes through tyres quicker than the SV I had that's for sure.

    Only thing I can think off is Going to Magaluf with my friends for my Birthday
    But only did that cos hubby said I couldnt have a party LOL

    Not an original piece obviously. They can fetch millions. It was a print of Drowning Girl. It is amazing though.

    I'm not a big spender, £518 for a 50" tv from here a month ago is my biggest purchase.

    I find lots of stuff i'd want but I just think hmm do I really need it?

    wow some mad stuff in here for sure :thumbsup:

    i remember when i got my first job back in 97 i felt real good and bought a £1000 kenwood separates stereo thing, which doesn't sound like much but it was like so out the blue and from kays or empire club-book and not on finance LOL!

    Paid 13k cash for my car 8 years ago worth about 1500 quid now.:whistling:

    a pair of slippers

    Just hired a full time nanny. That coupled with school fees is the equivalent to a brand new BMW each year.

    They had better get a good job and pay me back.

    My stock of jewellery and teleshopping products...spent well over £10k on those.

    lol, I don't touch them....although they were fast becoming my rivals. :giggle:

    I don't know about extravagant, but our most impulsive purchase was a couple of years ago. We went into a Honda garage to pick up some new mats for the car and ended up coming away with a brand new Honda Civic Type R.

    This was in 2001 when they had just come out, there was a wait list but one was ordered by someone who couldn't get insurance for it so we ended up driving it away. Now that was some salesman!!!!

    My gastric band, £7,500

    65 quid a shot of Louis Remy Martin XIII, i had 4 :oops:
