The devil you know is better than the one you don't...
If they're letting you keep the car for 300 that sounds a good deal, you'll have enough to get it MOT'd, and will have an 05 car, which you know well. The alternative is to buy another, unknown, older car, which may turn out to be trouble. You should still get a reasonable price for yours when you come to sell it, you may be able to find a decent door beforehand to tidy up its looks a bit, although being a Cat D will obviously count against it.

Just to update on this post - i did keep the not struggles to start - the dash sometimes wont turn on without a technical tap and the handbreak light is on even tho the handbreak is operating.

Oh and i get a cloud of white smoke when the car finally starts for about 5 seconds.
