The car is a 2.0l and has done 100K. Should we keep it and convert it or should we just drop the price until it sells??

Husband and I are dithering, one day we're keeping it and the next it has to go! We need to make a decision and just do it!
I know how you feel. I have the same problem. I am considering taking mine to Latvia where the conversion is more like about 500. Only setback the cost of fuel to get it to Latvia! Mine has done 140,000 so even more debatable whether it is worthwhile. I''m still thinking. I have also have a recurring problem with the alpha sensor or maybe it's the catalytic convertor (my friendly neighbourhood mechanic is not up to properly diagnosing the problem).
