    Question keep or get rid of the beast??

    ok- got a bit of a dilimma that doesn't involve grassing someone upi for cheating on their other half lol

    I've got an ex police service 03 vec 2.0DTI elite with 170k on the clock (I've put 42k on myself). had it for 2 and a half years and done what needs doing as i've gone along. The thing is that it is gonna need a new clutch very soon- started slipping a little when i really boot it. Its also in need of a suspension transplant so I'm gonna do springs and shocks if keeping her. Also think the rear control arms need doing while I'm at it and its also due a service.

    the problem is that on paper the car is worth £1200 and doing the maths on what needs doing I'm gonna be spending almost that to make her right.

    So the dilemma is do I chop her in and put a couple of grand on top of what i get for her and take my chances buying something else that may well turn into a money pit or just accept that I'll be spending dead money but have a car that I know and trust???
