Re: Vel Satis 3.5 Initiale Newbie

When I was looking to buy the VS some 4 years ag, I was told by the local Renault salesman that only 15 had been sold in the UK, and would I like to look at a Megane instead? (no, I didn't)....

I wasn't ever impressed by their product knowledge - the only good thing which arose from their ignorance of cambelt change intervals (or even if the engine had one), was that I joined this forum.

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