That's right Chris. I had the belt changed at the same time - that's an engine out / 1200 job! I don't know if they are trying to recoup some of the cost of the engine replacement but another A'time owner has been quoted 850 for a Renault exhaust - So 350 for S/steel seems very good especially with a lifetime warranty! Or maybe they just worked the price out incorrectly.........?

Yes Renault ownership can be expensive - more so with the larger cars I think. But driving down the M5 the other day with windows down was great fun and it's the best way to dust the interior!!!! Apologies to the car behind when a chocolate wrapper was sucked out of the footwell and though the window! This makes it all worth it - even the forthcoming road tax hike imposed by my friend at no. 11 - but that's another topic!
