Re: Newbie(ish)

I've now spent more on the Laguna than I paid for it. (1700)

I've had to rebuild the brakes, cooling system and fuel system.

This car has been badly neglected by its recent last 6 owners who seem to have just driven it around a bit and then sold it on, probably at a loss. What little maintenance was done was done badly. I had the CAM belt replaced, as I no longer trust the documentation and the mechanic told me that it had a non standard belt fitted and the timing was 2 teeth out.

List of work (I don't have all the cost)

Replaced Rear brake discs and pads Replaced radiator 220
Replaced front pads Replaced cabin filter 25
Replaced brake fluid Replaced coolant
Replaced flexi brake lines Replaced power steering fluid 15
Refurbish front and rear calipers 8 Replaced spark plugs 60
Replaced caliper bleed nipples Replaced locking wheel bolts 36
Replaced engine thermostat 220 Replaced rear shocks
Replaced all light bulbs Replace both lambda sensors 160
Replaced ancillary drive belt Geometry correction 17
Replaced 4 tyres 420 Removed extra exhaust support 0
Replaced engine oil Replaced coolant temp sensor 28
Replaced sump plug Repaired rear lighting loom 150
Replaced front and back wipers blades Replaced rear screen squirter 8
Replaced all wheel nuts Fuel pump, filter, regulator 235
Refurbish front windscreen wipers 0 CAM belt 500
Refurbish rear de-mister 12
Replaced headlight washer units 180
Replaced gearbox oil
Replaced front fog lights 45
Replaced n/s/f wheel 128
Replaced n/s/f front drop link
Replaced front wheel arch liner fixings 3
Replaced n/s/r lower spring shield 6
Replaced coolant cap
Replaced battery
Replaced bonnet stay
Replaced engine bay trim fixings 15

However now that the car is sorted I can honestly say it's one of the best I've owned and I'm very pleased with it and still consider it a bargain!
