Does anyone know if these were a Renault option ? there is another VS that is for sale at an Essex dealer with this kit on - a 3.5 petrol in red.
Mine also has a stainless steel exhaust sytem with twin exiting rear pipes - again I can only assume was fitted by a previous owner.
One problem I have currently is that I have a current drain which flattens the battery over a few days - a week will kill it off. I was translating part of a french Renault technical bulletin which suggested that the fault could be with the instrument panel - they use some CD Software to try and upgrade the instrument panel, and if this fails to upgrade, it says to fit a new instrument panel. Has anyone experience of a similar fault ?

Words don't do your car justice, I'm first in line to buy!

It's a Safrane, not a Laguna.
