    Keep it? or Change it?

    Hello,

    It is all about my T reg. 99 LS 5 Door 1.6 16v Hatch, which has just touched the 80K mark... (bought from 50K just about a year ago) It is due for a service and so far I had no problems to worry about, engine or otherwise.

    I am trying to decide whether it is worth keeping it and make a couple of mods... or sell it after the service and get a newer one... and do some (probably less) mods. All this considering the milage I do in a year (anything from 10K to 30K)

    How much do you reckon I could get for mine? private/part ex.? (it's got electric windows, abs, aircon, vaux alarm/immob)

    Cheers,
    Kakourdos

    if u can find something else you would rather be driving, then yes sell.

    but don't sell it just for the sake of it

    With the milage what about a DTI?
    You can get the sportyish SXi trim with the 2.0 in it.

    Well,

    I am thinking of something like an SXI... and again 1.6...
    No way I am getting a DTi. no offence, I just can't handle the way it sounds... I was that close to get a DTi in the first place but I backed off last moment.

    Cheers,

    personally, i don't think i could be bothered to swap a 1.6 16v for another 1.6 16v, just because it's got lower miles

    this is unless you do high mileage each year?
