    Don't replace it just so the same thing can happen again at a grand a time mate! Get it removed and mapped out like most people do, £300ish will do it for good! It's not needed for.the mot and are jist a pain in the butt

    Tyres are wear and tear items, you'd have to change them on any car.

    Springs the same, unbelievably common for springs to break on any car nowadays.

    Clutch and DMF very common on all modern diesels, regardless of manufacturer.

    Is your car an auto or an estate? If neither you don't have a DPF, if you do then the car needs do be driven harder and for longer runs to prevent it from blocking, again common on all modern diesels.

    Oh the joys of motoring

    Just a thought.... with all this work done you're in the position of knowing actual condition, age, etc of many parts of your vehicle... unlike most of us who just have to guess unless we've had the vehicle from new. It would be a shame to effectively throw that away and switch to a vehicle where you're back to hoping things aren't heavily worn.
