Advice on part exchange

Hi all,

Just needed a bit of advice really on what people's recommendations are for my current situ.

I've had my Mini Dooper (57 plate) for 4 years now - having taken out 5 years Mini Purchase. It had approx 40,000 miles on the clock when i bought it and ive just gone over the 114,000 mark.

I've had engine troubles and heard a knocking last week. Took it to the garage and they said the oil wasn't going around the engine properly and is damaged. It will apparently need a new engine and turbo charger (approx 2,000 to fix, I've been quoted).

I just wondered what everyones advice would be for my current situation? Im reluctant to spend 2 grand on a car that has done a fair few miles where something is likely to go wrong with it again. Could I perhaps part ex it still at a Mini dealership for a new/approved one and have the remaining finance rolled over?
