I'm not sure about the Lag 2's as they haven't filtered down to me yet,but Tazzy is absolutely right....The Lag 1's(amongst other Renaults) have the nearside CV joint inboard in the gearbox and if the gaiter leaks oil (which it generally does) the gearbox oil level gets low and it can damage the gearbox......

I have some pictures somewhere,I'll see if I can find them....

EDIT;Sorry but it looks like I've deleted them all.

What exactly is the garage saying?.Whats the story behind the gearboxes being replaced?

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