I've only had my Lag since December 2007 so just over a year. I just worked out how much I've spent on maintenance since having it and I was surprised by how much I've spent so far, a fair bit to be said!!

I've had a lot for my money so I can't really complain. Here's my spend and what I've had for my money.

Total spend in the region of 660.

For this I've had:

Major service ( oil , filter, plugs etc etc)
Cambelt change
Front brake discs
Brake pads all round
4 tyres at 60 a pop. 225/45/ZR17 Cheap ones!!!
A new key card. (162)

I've done all the work myself so have saved a fortune in labour costs. You'd prob pay 660 alone at Renault for the cambelt change!!

Just gotta get the TPS sorted now as I've had 2 sensors fail on me, one got snapped having a tyre changed and the other just stopped working. I assume the battery in it went dead! I'll prop just have the system disabled as it's cheaper than replacing 2 sensors!!

Just read the first post and Nigel said not to include tyres, soz folks!! Wouldn't be much of a spend without them!!! lol!!
