Morning all

I have a Vectra 1.8 Life 2007, 112k miles. just failed MOT on small exhaust puncture and bulbs. it will also need a new clutch pretty much immediately

I have just bought a new car, and this was going onto Ebay regardless, and i WILL be declaring the clutch issue

so my question is this - it will cost £150 for me to get it through a MOT. Clutch i can do myself, so will cost me around £440. is it worthwhile getting fresh 12 month MOT and hen selling, or fixing clutch and MOT, or neither and sell as is?

i am leaning towards getting it through the MOT for £150 and selling it and declaring the clutch issue

any advice is welcome :)
