Disintegrated coil (above spark plug) and cylinder head sent off to engineers

Hi guys,

Not having much luck with fiat puntos. This is my second GP, this one is an evo 1.4L 105bhp multiair - bought June 2020 from a dealership (out of warantee just) - 3 months, well kept otherwise.

Basically I am wondering for people who know about cars and mechanics if once this problem is salvaged, could I still have a car that would run problem free for a few years? I have had issues with my old GP and got rid, but I really like the comfort/style of fiat cars.

The garage have quoted it may be 600 as 2 x new springs were needed for multiair which cost 250-300, engineers need to remove fragments from the cylinder head and replace at least 1 cylinder.

Is the car worth keeping after this work is done? Are there any testimonies that a 10-year old punto evo can be a reliable car for the next few years for work? Mine has 70k miles usually drives well (reg 2010) only thing is clutch tiny bit sticky. Thank you in advance
