    MY CAR DIED :0( DO I REPLACE WITH FLOPTOP OR RUNAROUND?

    So the cam belt snaps on way to dentist and I am told that it will have probably ruined everything with it!!!

    Do I buy another soft top when prices are going to be silly as we have glimpsed the sun? or do I get a cheap runaround until autumn and then get a floptop?

    Would love a Merc but think I will have to settle for a Peaugeot or Renault Megane if I go for a floptop due to rising petrol prices! and have already decided on metallic blue or silver and hopefully an automatic being a kripple I find it hard to drive a manual without pain!!!

    why not get it checked out first? :thinking:

    Even a replacement engine would surely be cheaper than a new car :w00t:

    What's a floptop?

    Flop top is a soft top!!!

    Being kripple it's a tad hard to ride a bike but nice suggestion derrr!!!!

    I will get it checked but spoken to 3 mechanics who all told me its probably more expensive to fix than get a 2nd hand car.....

    what u mean kripple??

    what make / model is your car

    i have a similar dilemma

    depending on how badly the cam belt has damaged your engine it may be repairable........happened to my mates rabbit........cost him around £500 notes
