Thanks Webcode!One of my all time favorite rally cars.We used to have a few 131 Mirafioris in our area,but I haven't seen one in years.I think the tin worm finally found them!!

Have Renault stopped used Sagem coils ,then?

I must admit,I don't rate their stuff at all.We have a problem with Sagem coil packs and ECU 's on 306 1.4's.The coil pack sends a spike back to the ECU ,the ECU than sends a spike to the IAC valve!.We have done quite a few of these and even with getting the ECU repaired rather than replacing it it's still a £700 job.( Coil ,IAC, ECU repair and labour).

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
