update here. My cambelt snapped whilst on the motorway (should've taken your advice sooner!) and cost my 573 for fixing new cam, damage to pistons etc and new sparks. Also got oil change and coolant change.

Just a note about the cutting out though. This seems to be a very common renault problem, that can be fixed by either cleaning or replacing the top dead centre sensor. I had to get a new exahust a couple of months ago, the mid and tail sections needed replacing. I've not changed my tdcs, but I haven't had a single cut out and it's idling great. ATS does a free exhaust check for any cut-out sufferers to think about.
