Scrap or repair - 51 Clio 1.4 16v
First time post here... would really appreciate your advice
My Clio (1.4, 16v) has a knackered engine. The camshaft started to fall apart, with a bit of metal coming off and bending the valves... possibly a bit worse too (haven't taken the head off to have a closer look).
Garage reckons the damage is £500-1000 depending on the cylinder heads etc. The car's got 105k on the clock, so it's probably not worth more than £1500 or so.
The garage has offered £300 for it. What do you reckon? Fix it, sell it to the garage, flog it on
? I'm at a loss here so would appreciate any advice.
Cheers in advance
