I think I'm right in saying that the later dCi turbos are far more reliable.The oil change intervals were far too long on the earlier engines(18000 miles!) and Renault also changed the recommended oil spec from 10w40 to 5w40.Newer dCi's have 9000 mile oil change intervals which is far more like it.

Good luck with your new car.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
