Just had the rear bushes and shocks done, the old were original, front joints are still original and just passed the MOT. Turbo etc replaced last year.
145,000 on the clock, not bad, eh?
Get the Bodies through customs O.K Nick

( Which way did you take the Bodies, too the U.K, or from the U.K ? )

Best yet 56 (that is between 70&80 in 6th gear ).
Rather inconsistent innit ?

Just had all four glowplugs replaced by renault as I reported bad return on fuel economy and one showed up on diagnostic as fault .
Waiting to see if its made much difference will report later on results
This is a diesel engine! Changing glowplugs is will not affect economy. The glow plugs are only used to start the engine. All diesel engines once running use the pistons to compress the atomised fuel, this creates heat and ignites the fuel.

Sounds normal to good to me - but then it does depend on your speed, load etc...

Some people say I'm stark raving bonkers, the others just smile and nod...

Unhappy

My dCI 120 Sport Tourer does 47-49 mpg during my 80 mile daily return journey along the A3, M25, M3 journey via Woking to West London. My previous hatch with the same engine gearbox managed 52 easily.
My current car is 20 months old, 36,000 miles on the clock, worth less than half what I paid for it (new registration) and the replacement Euro 4 car has gone to a 9,000 mile service interval from the current 18,000 mile. I asked my local dealer how much servicing would cost and he couldn't/wouldn't tell me until I bought a new car and gave him the registration "for the computer". So I didn't book the service on my current car with them. Another more forthcoming dealer said that the 9,000 service would be 204 and the 18,000 mile service would be over 300. At 18,000 miles I paid 169 on my current car. So it's sex and travel to Renault - I've ordered a big Vauxhall Vectra estate with a 150PS engine and 20,000 service interval and got it for 5k less that Renault wanted for their 130PS FAP Euro Sport Tourer.
As for other posts - I changed tyres from a side street garage on my previous hatch with tyre pressure monitors without any problems having told them not to change the valves and replace on the same hub. The Michelin Premacy tyres (which are excellent) cost 50 less each than my Renault dealer wanted. My current 2005 model doesn't have the stupid sensors (which were overly sensitive to cold mornings) so no annoying displays from that part.
I've not suffered the kind of problems many others have with their Lagunas but the servicing costs of the new engine are going to treble and put people like me off them. If Vauxhall can do long service intervals on their Euro 4 engines why can't Renault? Goodnight Vienna
