    General Chat
    A few months back I bought my Kangoo, its a 1,9 Diesel from 2002, it's got (relatively?) low miles at 75k and everything seems to be running pretty smoothly on it.

    Handling & braking
    Hi, I'm looking into getting some lowering springs for my 2010 Clio 1.2 tce s. My main motivation for this is to improve the looks. I think if it's lowered by 30mm it will look ten times better. I'm guessing that cornering will improve aswell. To be honest, I'm quite happy with how the car...
  16. Fully Synthetic 5w 40 in '04 Laguna dCi 120 - a bad idea?

    Will fully synthetic 5w 40 do my 04 dCi 120 any harm? I'm thinking of Shell Helix Ultra Diesel, which is very reasonable for 5l. For some reason, I have it in my head that the viscosity should be 10w 40. But the only 10w 40 I can find is semi-synthetic. Any advice gratefully received.

From the beginning I invested a lot in it (stupid I know, but what can I say.. its a passion :D) so I might as well just buy an exhaust for it. When its parked everybody assumes its 2.0 Clio sport or at least some with...
