166 Investment in new Radiator or Trade in......
My 166 3.0 sportronic 72k miles needs a new radiator, I have booked her in for the job at a cost of something like around £400 ish all in. Did see threads about DIYing it but think i would mess it up without a helping hand (any offers will be considered !!). So the dilemma i have is am i doing the right thing by that I know it needs to be done but my plan is to get another 25 to 30k miles out of her and trade / sell at 96k / 100k miles ish = 1.5 years time. I love the car she does everything well and don't want to change for the sake of it.
Does anyone see anything else major I will need to carry out apart from servicing of course.
Incidentally I have replaced the below;
cam belt - 60k miles
exhaust - 60k miles
front road springs - 60 miles
I know things go wrong and I am judging this as an investment to get another 1.5 / 2 years motoring, but any advice from people as to what to look out for on a 166's between the 70k to 100/120k mile region would be welcome....thanks in advance
