Ok i heard all about this when it was too late but 2K out of pocker with a fekked engine and a fekked turbo i was recommended no more than 12k between oil changes, that about right?

When you reset the service flashing spanner it comes back as 18k, i know this can't be changed but hopefully when someone buys a Renault with 1.9 DCi engine fitted the seller tells them this..........
