At the end of the day, it's an old car, with a very high mileage (cambelt change due?), and you have to ask yourself - has it been loved?

If the answer is no, don't keep it - it will cost you many times more than what you paid for it - and still be worth less than the purchase price.

If you sell it now, you'll only lose a hundred or so.


Thanks a lot for that viewpoint. Has it been loved? If by that you mean taken on a number of surf trips, I'd say yes

I wouldn't even have the first clue how to sell something like this - the receipt I got from the garage even says "customer advised not to drive".
