Deffo a phase 2 for the 1.6 16 valve engine. I found the 1.6 8 valve was a little underpowered (though willing enough, definetely not gutless) in the Megane hatch I had, and assuming the Scenic is a bit heavier than a Megane then of course this would be worse. The 1.6 8 valve also would seem to be prone to cylinder head gasket troubles - there have been a few reported on here lately, and I didn't have much luck either. Aside from that I didn't have any other major problems with the car though while I had it

Happy hunting
