I think what Shark is looking for is someone who has driven the car 10, 15, or 20k miles and how much did they pay for running costs. It is not so fantastic to drive a car 2000 miles and only need an oil change. If you look at most 20k mile cars and review the service records they often total 20-30k. Of the cars I've looked at this is the case. The ones that don't have 20k in service records need it to become a perfect car. From the cars I have seen and the one I owned, 1.5 dollars per mile is a safe bet. I'm talking about the 5k mileage range on up. You can not count the under 5k range because the car is new, of course not much is going wrong. I thought the car I owned was one of the most beautiful cars I've ever seen but the build quality frankly sucked. Ash tray was already getting stickey (Ferrari can't find a coating that does not get sticky after 15 years?), switches comming loose, too many electrical issues to mention such as the fuel guage not reading correctly every time the car gets wet, ect ect. The prices are so attractive now every time I see one I want to get another one but I just can't see swapping my daily driver Porsche for such a tempermental car, even if it is much more sexy.
