    Just wanted to reiterate and thank people for the sage advice given here regarding the infamous Laguna 2 rear sub frame bushes, use only the Lemforder parts or Renault parts (same thing, different box), Ebay specials are a waste of time as these are what had been fitted to my car and I don't...

    I have noticed, well should I say "my mechanic" has noticed how rusty the front subframe is getting on the clio.
