Re: service cost bah :

Got the "service" aka renault health check today.
So warranty req are met.
They did find near 1K worth of things that needed to be fixed, nor under warranty

1. 2 new continental 225/35/20 tyres (special order ),
550 the pair + fitting.
Tyres I knew about.. and I can get them slightly cheaper than that !

2. Engine/gearbox, underbody plastic tray n 7 bolts.
100 + 28 for bolts + fitting.
They concluded it must have hit off a speedbump or something , hah .. I wondered why the sump looked easier to get at than I remembered.

It must have been taken off when the dpf/exhaust was repaired.. no speedbump is gonna shear off a plastic tray cleanly and unscrew 7 10 mm bolts at the same time.
My local mechanic dude is searchin the garage premises for the item.. and the apprentices.. likely to get some stick .

3.the n/s front shock dust cover has cracked replacement cost 90!
Well that should be warranty right?.. not so really since I put on nice bright red lowering springs.They dont look very oe.
Everything else is ok.
I wonder did they really expect me to say, lets make an appt to get the other things done
Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
