Re: Which one????

Well chaps,

your advice has been great and I have viewed a few others but not felt good about any I have seen. What is it with people just running cars and not maintaining them!!! They then wonder why they go wrong. Not one of them had a clue when the cambelts and water pumps were done.

I have noticed a few nice looking examples of the earlier engined 8v megane. For some reason I had not really considered these as they don't seem to get food write ups but I had a Volvo 440 for many years which had a 8v Renault engine which I think may have been closely related to the 8v units in the megane. The volvo was a great car and the engine and box (renault!)did 200k and the cambelt was a piece of cake compared to the scenic 16v.

Can anyone give me an idea of how the 8v compares to the 16v units? Refinement, mpg etc etc.

cheers, Tom.
