Sorry to hear you have had enough, Ripsnort but I do sympathise.
Now you know why it was so cheap. I bought mine for exactly the same reason, was cheap and looked good and I entirely agree with your assesment.
Have owned loads of Renaults (5s, 6, 12, 14, 16s, 18, 25, 30 and a Feugo). All had their problems but most were fixed fairly easily.
The best of the bunch, and probably one of the best cars I have owned, was the 30. Only got rid of it because it was written off after an accident with a R5!
The Lag is a different animal altogether. If it did not drive so well, be so comfortable even after 3 hours at the wheel and been reliable so far it would have been sold by now.
Every job seems to be a major exercise. The rear brake disks should have taken a couple of hours max. Two days later I was still drilling out the retaining screws! Obviously Renault have realised the problem as the replacements are a much improved design and, hopefully, do not have the heads made out of cheese!
Anyway, good luck with whatever replaces your Lag.
