Re: renault swap

Unless you know the full service history very well of the Lag II then I'd decline the offer.

The 1.9dci is famed for its turbo failing and sometimes taking the engine with it. This is down possibly to the 18k miles between services / oil changes that was original stated by Renault. If at all possibly the oil should be changed every 9-12k.

Hope that helps.
