    MG Convertible

    I've got an MG F soft top convertible that had the cambelt go I've been told it will cost just over £1,000 to repair - whilst waiting to sort out my money to arrange the repair some idiots stole my number plates and hit the front wing causing a little bit of damage. The windscreen has a crack through it and the rear plastic window has a small rip - apart from that it's a nice little car (I had a lot of work done on the water works prior to the cam going). Now I have a dilemma yesterday I went out and have put a deposit on a Peugot 307 hard top convertible and have now lost all interest in the little MG I currently have it out the front of my house wrapped up with no place to go - so what should I do........

    (a) sell it for about £ 400
    (b) keep it until i get interest back and do it up and maybe then sell it
    (c) Sell it's bits and pieces as spare parts
    (d) go with one of the suggestions from HUKD

    So there we go - what do you suggest please ?

    The repairs will cost you alot more than the car is actually worth.

    yes its gold (Y reg) - its a lovely car but now i need the space to park my new one - i'm giving l my other car which is a renault laguna to my daughter - so i still have the space should i decide to keep it (i know im making excuses to keep it but i really am undecided on it)

    Rover K series engine = dissaster. I know this after skinning my knuckles for far too long working on an S1 Lotus Elise. How many times have you had the head gasket replaced already? If none, then that will be the next thing...

    Get rid of the thing. Forget your sentimentality! Gold will be a hard colour to resell any way.
