    Besides anything else your not allowed to sell a vehicle with outstanding finance as technically is doesn't belong to you. It belongs to the finance company. I guess you know that but worth pointing out

    I used to have a diesel polo for during the week and use my astra burg at weekends to save cash. Ended up driving more AR weekend therefore with added rax, insurance mot, diesel etc i was was saving next to nothing. So vxr is back to every day running. Bye polo!

    Personally i'd get a gtc diesel with vxr pack and 20's, looks nearly as good as the vixxer with cheap tax, cheap fuel bills etc.
    150 x 52 = 7,800 miles a year... That's nothing.

    Basically whatever you do, apart from keep the VXR, is going to cost you more...unless you're going to be doing like 50,000 miles a year, so you may as well just keep it

    Thats nothing.

    You have lifetime warrenty so there is no real issue with repairs other than servicing which is still only once a year with the milage you are doing.

    Keep the car, put the fuel in it and enjoy what you saved up for
