Alfa 147 - Time to say goodbye? :(
I have an 2002 Alfa 147 2.0 twin spark Lusso with 63k miles on the clock. It's the first car I've owned, I've had it 3 years and it's great!
However, I now realise I am in need of an MOT next month and the car may need work. One thing - it definitely needs a new brake light and two new tyres. I'll probably need the handbrake cable replaced as well, and the last time I was in the garage they mentioned the clutch riding high. But the big thing... I suspect I need the timing belt changed, which I think will cost around £800.
As this is my first car, I'm not entirely sure when to get rid of the car, but with the looming repair bill I'm thinking now might be the time.
webuyanycar.com (apologies if you have a tune in your head) will offer me £1500 for the car, but not sure if it's actually worth more.
Should I get rid? Sell or trade in? Can I repair the car myself (I don't have experience of repairs yet)? There's no other car I'd rather have at the moment, so I'd prefer not to retire the car just yet.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
