Re: Vel Satis 3.5 Initiale Newbie

Hi Dave/Wile7,

Sorry to hear about your bad Renault garage experience when you took your Vel in. I've come across the same problems, either with garages seeming disinterested in working on the Vel, incompetent in general, or like you where they say they will do things and then they can't, or something goes wrong.

I hope you can find a good independent! Keep us posted. I'm yet to find a good indie garage, but I've found a great mobile Renault mechanic who knows his stuff. He can't do anything too major, though.

Your K&N filter sounds great, and I share your views on the stereo sound system and also the cornering. I always take corners pretty slowly, but even in my 3 litre diesel, accelerating off down a straight still brings a smile to my face.
