Laguna 1.8 16V Privalege Sport Tourer

lets see, i gave up with the old one, and went for retail therapy c/o ebay

2200 for the car
1100 for the LPG conversion
450 for the insurants, damn them ants must be gold plated or something.....
just replaced all the back suspension
200 for MAD progressive heavy duty rear springs
110 for x2 gas shocks
30 or so for x2 rear bushes
90 odd fitting bill
100 to get the silverstone toffy wheels knocked back into a circular sort of shape.

got the bill next for 250 odd for new front shocks, top mounts, springs, anti-roll bar linkages, track rod arms and ends. and another fitting bill with the brakes to be blead on the front to clear the gunk inthe fluid.

next after that is the stainless steel exhaust(350) and maybe the discs and clutch in the next year

i think this ones only cost me oooohhh 4.5k inside 1 month

though it shouldnt go wrong or break for a couple of years or so..........

at least it only costs me 44p/L to refuel (having a NHS/ jobby will soon fleece out of enough business milage to recoup the conversion costs)

now all i need is a new well paying job to get this new set of wheels to make its money back.....

here gizza gissajob..........
