Is it worth paying the 120 that Renault want or is it better to find an equivalent.

Any othe members experiences would be useful. I have searched all the threads, but does not seem clear cut to me.

Hi Nig if was me i would paying and be looking for a equivalant to be honest,i hope this helps Donald
