Lost my Vel Satis virginity!

Hi all,

Purchased my Vel Satis yesterday, a 3.5 V6 Initiale and am totally over the moon with it. Wonderfully quiet and refined and just enough power!

It's an 02 plate with 106,000 on the clock and cost me 2800 off Ebay with 9 month MOT and Tax and almost new tyres (Michelin Primacy). I was the only bidder and I think the previous was a bit cheesed off he didn't get any more for it. Got loads of history, basically every bit of paperwork for the car since new and it is almost flawless. Just had to get the two key cards repaired this morning as each of them had a button failed.

Is there anything I need to look out for on the V6 or the Vel Satis in general?

Looking forward to sharing my experiences with you all (including the local Renault dealer who said "a what?" when I ask him to quote fixed prices for servicing).
