Re: 80bhp or 100bhp????

I had a similar issue when I bought my Megane estate 1.5 dci 4 years ago.
The log book said 100bhp and the sticker said 80bhp. The car was selling as 100bhp and I told the private dealer I would not buy it until I knew.
He jumped in the car with me went down to the Renault main dealer and went to the service dept. Gave the chassis number and engine number to the service manager who stuck it in the computer and confirmed the 80bhp.
The log book was wrong!
As it happened I negotiated 400 quid off the car and benifited with better fuel economy and cheaper tax ( I live in the ROI but bought the car in Belfast).
Engine and chassis number are the key!
Good luck
