My local renault dealer wanted £440 to change my

He's charging £160. I,d say stay away from the dealers if at
all possible.
The plugs on a V6 Laguna are not exactly straight foward to change,and at an hourly rate of (probably) £100 an hour(inc VAT),this is about right!Unbelievable,but unfortunately true....

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