Thanks jineshodha

I'm not that mechanically minded, so ended up taking it to a Renault Minute dealer in Dorking, Surrey. They charged me £73 which I thought reasonable, given the original quote I recieved was nearly twice that! I'm with you on the need to do an oil change every 9k or so- I'm doing quite a lot of short trips and after reading threads on here and elsewhere, there seems to be lack of clarity from renault concerning how frequent changes need to be for the 1.5dci and I concluded it was better to err on the side of caution.

140 is way OTT. 70-80 at Renault Minute is the norm.
I would buy a genuine Renault filter from the dealer and then get a back street garage to do the change - but make sure the correct oil is used, 5W/40 fully synthetic if I remember correctly.

Or do it yourself
