    For 8 years I have owned and serviced my Saabs with parts from Parts for Saabs in the UK. I am in New Zealand. Is there a similar alternative Renault parts supplier. Often genuine Saab parts were so expensive it was good to have another option if I wanted it.

    I'm looking to put only just 2 seats in the front of my Renault Master as I'm converting it into a camper, and get rid of the double. Are there any other Renault or misc seats with height adjustment that may easily fit? Perhaps from an old Laguna or something. Thanks, Graham

    Hi. Unfortunatly I have just had the turbo blow on my Rx4. I think it has taken out the engine as well and I am asking whether any 1.9 Dci engine will fit or will it have to be from donor Rx4 as there are a lot more standard scenic/megane diesels out there.?
