The Laguna 1 Phase 2's came in 1998.You can tell them from a Phase 1 as they have plastic headlights and round front foglights(or blanks).They were a facelifted Lag 1 and featured new engines and just generally updated systems.

The RXE is the higher spec one with all the toys,or there were some 'Monaco' models made for a short time,but these are scarce and command a premium price.My Lag 1 Phase 2 is an RT and has electric sunroof,electric front windows,air con,remote central locking etc.....

The gearboxes are a slight weak point(I've just had to change mine),but most of the problems are caused by oil leaks running the gearbox dry.If you keep an eye on the oil level(easy to do),then you should be OK.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
