My silver 2.0 tdci mondeo just failed its mot . Nothing major front spring + trackrod end ball joint. If I planned on keeping the car I would be happy to pay the £180 quoted to repair it.

But my plan was to sell it come insurance renewal time.

Realistically what are these worth?

170k mileage 55 plate with xenons, injectors were replaced at 135k no idea about the clutch or dmf.

If that's all it's failed on then keep it. When is the insurance due?

My plan was already to sell the car later in the year .

Silverlake have offered £420 scrap

If I decide to repaire then sell. It going to cost 180 to repair and I'm not sure it will sell for 600+ to recoup the money spent on repairing it

£420 is flippin' incredible for scrap!

I scrapped a similar car a few months ago and got £185 (car collected). The next best offer was £60-ish and quite a few came back with £0!

I just checked the car I scrapped again and its value has (would have) gone up by about £35. Imagine having a scrap car sitting on your driveway, appreciating in value. I couldn't keep it indefinitely, though.

I think there must be some regional variation in scrap prices, as with most things.

Got £186.99 for my old ST24 in January 2014. I miss that engine :(.
Couldn't really trade it in for the TXS as it wasn't driveable and had loads of things going wrong.

Fix it, drive it for another year and then see what's what.
That way you've had a year's motoring and if you decided to sell. it'll sell as a runner, not a scrapper.
It's an ideal time of year to be working on/under cars... no frostbitten fingers and light till later.
p.s. At least it passed on the smoke test!

I've driven it once since October last year It doesnt get used since I bought my st. One of the reason I was going to sell it.
