On my way to work this morning, as I pulled out of a roundabout, I shifted to 2nd and started hearing a horrid noise, sounded like some one had put spanners into the engine! Shifted to 3rd to get off the roundabout then a massive cloud of smoke came out and kept smoking really bad!

Lifted the bonnet and instantly saw the AUX belt had slipped by 3 notches which I think somehow knocked the timing belt and that awful engine noise may have been valves bending...

I really didn't need this! Bought a new timing belt too, was going to get it fitted during the week!

Thinking of scraping it, and getting a new car!
