I bought my Laguna II 2001 in May for 1000+70indemity from an auction.
I have spent about 200 on head rebuild including new valves, cambelt kit, 50 new window regulator. 100 oil plugs filters etc. It needs another window regulator and may need a clutch soon.
All work done myself.
I started using it in October & have done 2000miles so far with no problems or costs.

Had my car just over a year spent 150 on 2 second hand brake calipers and just spent 90 this week on a new heater resistor.
Ive had 4 new tyres , brake pads and oil change done but thats just wear and tear so does not bother me.

Cornwall the place to be!

I never like answering this type of question.

Owned the car since August last year.

Other than routine servicing & tyres, the only expenditure over the 30,000 miles I've since put on it was a 3-year warranty (400), and a battery/electrical short repair (160).

Long may that be the case.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

I answered the Poll before fully thinking. I bought the car for 4450 in June, paid 1152 for insurance from NUD (9 months Rapid Bonus), 90 for a CD Changer (fitted), 40 for a OBD check and underseat airbag wiring fix, 20 for a fitted replacement hazard switch.

...And the currently ongoing (Not at Fault!) claim for some spanner reversing into my Car in the college carpak which should *touch wood* come to nothing except me getting a new headlight and shiny front bumper

So in total, about 5750
