Cool Most Dependable Renault Engine Built - Opinions?

Having spent some time on the forums what would we all say was the most dependable Renault Powertrain ever built?

I know my 2000 1.6 16v Scenic with 120k still runs like a champ and always has done.

Other peoples opinions?

Cheers Adam

I have the same engine with 122k on it and still runs smoothly with no leaks at all.

The F3R and F3P were very strong,the last of the old style 8 valve engines before everything went 16 valve/variable valve timing etc.The L7X is strong too,although that wasn't 100% developed by Renault themselves so that doesn't really count.
