    Using the reg to create an ad on Autotrader suggests a selling price of £370.

    £225 is very reasonable if it lasts another 10 months or so til next MOT though....might be too costly to MOT for a further year though, although you might be surprised and it may have years left in it..

    It's a 14 year old car, lowish miles for age. Not a car that was likely to have been ragged. A trader is selling as seen to clear his stock. If the engine runs OK and consumable parts are OK tyres brakes etc. Might be worth a look. If its still there.

    Basically look at it as buying an mot. If something goes wrong scrap and look for another.

    Head gaskets are very prone for going on them, Make sure their is no oil in water or water in oil and it's not kicking out white smoke.

    Still providing it drives ok and is road legal it's scrap price.!

    Good for money as long as head gasket isnt gone on it. Scrap price is 12 pound a ton very poor at the moment. With a yr mot looks ok

    As ive just learnt, to check head gasket, Look for white gunk in the coolant ( correct me if im wrong )
