Mininova is perfectly legit... as far as BitTorrent sites go. The site is really just a big index of torrents that are available on other sites.

Is it legit in the legal sense? Most certainly not. A legitimate copy of the Dialogys software will set you back big bucks, and someone is giving away copies without Renault's consent, which amounts to copyright fraud.

Is it legit in the sense of 'are you getting what you think you're getting?' Maybe, maybe not. The data has been shared by an individual, who may have honest enough intentions or may be trying to do something malicious. I've seen stuff on BitTorrent sites that claims to be one thing, but in fact turns out to be a trojan installer. You're safe enough with audio and video (they can't contain any program code, and therefore can't do anything nasty) but with stuff like this, you pays your money and takes your chance.

Now what was that link again?
