Re: Vel Satis Problems

Hi there and welcome.

The wheel bearings should be no different than on any other car.

The electrics are a renault's Achilles Heel, and on a car with as much electrics as this...

Let's just say, I sold mine at a huge loss for this very reason.


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

Sad farewell

After almost 8 years and just under a 100,000 miles I'm about to say farewell to my VS. As we all know they are a fairly unique piece of automotive history. I will miss the long drives down to the South of France, where 'it' is at home in more ways than one. It's comfort for everyone and its load carrying capacity. But the time has come to say goodbye.
I've 'replaced' it with another even rarer French machine, a Citroen C6. The comparison is about to begin.
Anyone want a 2003 3.0dci Initial with 143,000 on-the-clock?
