I’ve just got Bruce my 2003 Bug back from a friend who neglected him for 3 years!
Rare Alaskan Green 1.9 TDI 150k & crayon smell - he’s a weekend car.
The dilemma - it will cost £1100 to pass MOT & need Cambelt too ASAP.
Given it’s rare and otherwise in good condition do I go with my heart and repair or say goodbye and let him go Bug heaven? I need help please !

Ask yourself this. Will I regret it if I keep it and fix it, or if I send it to the Beetle graveyard? Your answer will tell you.



If it were me, a low mileage TDI, and that rare color, I would keep and fix.

What's more important to you...the joy and warm happy feeling of owning and driving your Beetle - or a meaningless cold dead money pile? 🤔 ...haha!:giggle:

Not all the best decisions you can make for your life have to make the most financial sense!:)

Awesome little Beetle...keep it going in my opinion!:D

Keep it mate. Looks in fantastic condition (body and interior) other then the mechanical needed to pass MOT. Fun car is always worth a few quid. Cheers
