    Hello, I've had a series 1 scenic petrol for years now as a family car and have been pleased with it. I have run an old fiat punto as a second car but I've spotted a nice 2002 megane series 1 1.9DCI. I wondered if any one could let me know if these are any good? Main areas i'm interested in...

    I've had a 1.4 16v scenic now for years and have been very impressed by it. It's just coming up to 142000miles but is still going strong but I can't help thinking if I spotted a good lower mileage car at the right price I'd be tempted. I have been keeping an eye out for a Scenic II but I have...

    Hi All I have an 1994 Trafic 2.5 diesel (non turbo). Whilst I appreciate its got very low gearing it seems as slow as a slug. Are these engines goverened or soemthing? It is possibly incorrectly timed as it does seem loud as if its slightly too advanced (I think). But I thought I'd just check...

    My 1.9DCi smokes like mad when you give it a good bootfull! It is even worse now I've fitted a tuning box. I see a lot of diesels kick out smoke when they are thrashed, TDs particulary, but what actually causes this?
