Hi Noel - No, my car didnt have any extra bits and hadnt been modified in any way at all.
The problems though did start around the same time as the contaminated fuel outbreak! This was my first thought at the time. I checked on the Tesco website and found out that my local Petrol Station was one of those that had been infected, so I told Renault this and they said I should bring it in for the diagnostics test and that would tell us. So I did that and they told me it was definately not down to dodgy fuel, but valve timings, although I still think it did have some bad fuel in it and contributed to the problem.
Anyway the Burnt Valve Seat was eventually found and then fixed.
Hope that helps.
