Sell it to who? I don't think I could do that and feel good about myself. The laquer has started to shed like dandruff lol. No I'll use it till it drops and just deal with what I can. Clutch is getting dicey now though and slips more and more. What size are the tyres on the 14" are they easy to come by and is there much choice out there? I think I'd prefer 15's but... why not?I have a set of 14 inch steel wheels with michelin alpin4 winter tyres on. These fit fine and were originally on a skoda fabia. The tyres are 2012 with a lot of tread on. I am happy to swop them or even sell them to you.
Your car does sound like a money pit. I would just sell it on and get a better one. I have a tdi which I have managed to keep on the road while doing the repairs. Generally, that is my rule of thumb, which is that significant amounts of time off the road are not worth it.
