Question Should I replace a 52 with an 05?

Good morning folks.

I have a question I would like your opinion on. I have a 52 plate Scenic II fidji with which we are very happy, it has never let us down..... bar the starter motor but that was fixed under warranty. It does everything it says on the tin and is, in my opinion, the perfect family car. Could do with more power and better mpg but I'm sure thats the case with everyones car. We had no intention of changing and are still paying finance on it after two years of ownership.

The thing is, the dealer (Arnold Clark - Dundee, and before anyone starts on Arnold Clark I must say we've had generally good service and I can't complain about this branch) where we bought the car was on the phone the other day asking how we were getting on with it, was honest and told him we loved it. He then suggested they had a large number of 1.6 petrol 05 plate Grand Scenics, any one of which he could supply for the same finance payments we are curently paying, of course the period would be extended. Now the new car looks great and seven seats would be an advantage with the kids pals, the extra boot space would be handy for the camping and all that....

But, we don't need a new car and I'm happy with the current one. On the other hand the current one has about 70k due the timing belt and other minor service stuff, the new one has less than 20k, Dynamique spec, choice of colours....

Arnold is obviously desperate to shift these cars which I guess have been returned from three year finance deals.

Theres the dilema. What do you do?
