It will be scrapped / passed on for scrap value. I'm considering finance as I literally don't have two pennies to rub together, and I need a car for picking my son up from the rendezvous point.

And nobody dare suggest negotiating with my ex, she's not that kind of person, and we've only just had the court crap sorted.

Can someone please buy this Golf. It is a solid thing with a good chunk of MOT on it. It has a nice tidy GTi interior and virtually mint alloys and tyres. The wheels alone are worth £100 to £150.

 

Surely it can't be that difficult to lob a clutch in it.

I think it would definitely raffle at that kind of price.

 

Whether it's the right thing for you - only you can decide.  I think there's such a negligible difference between scrap (minus the wheels/interior) and raffle - i'd be taking the path of least resistance and making a few calls this morning about having it cubed.

 

What I would say is it's December, you've clearly got plenty on and it could end up being in the way for a little while whilst the raffle sells out, is executed and the car collected.

 

Good luck either way.

How much are they offering for scrappage? As B said above, it all depends on timescales/space and so on.

 

It would b e great if the car lived on as all said, it is solid and so on and has a lengthy MOT but you have to do what is best for you in the crappy circumstances.

Indeed. Or they'll just take the easy option and do a cartakeback themselves.

Maybe pinch a few useful small bits off it first - lights and switches don't take up a lot of space, maybe a few smaller bits of trim. Might be a way to get another £50 out of it on top of anything cartakeback offer?

If you win this for your £2.50 stake are you seriously gonna shift it home and put a clutch in it? Fair play if so.
