This is only really the case if the generic parts are to Original Equipment standard. (necessary to maintain the warranty)

P.S. you don't need a renault service history to maintain the warranty, but you do need supporting invoices from a vat-registered garage/mechanic.

Hope that helps,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
