My Beetle (2005, 1.6L, Cabriolet) has done over 100,000 miles and is burning too much oil (so failed its NCT/MOT/test) Garage suggesting changing catalytic converter without being sure this will solve the problem. I am considering getting the engine reconditioned instead (haven't got a quote for this though yet). I understand that the resale value of the car will only go up as these cars are no longer being manufactured. I'd be grateful for any thought or suggestions. I am in Dublin, Ireland. Thanks.
