Hi Hu - Is yours a write off - what did the insurers give you for it - if you don't mind me asking.:)
HI
Offically a write off - it was a 3rd party policy so now the car is mine, the case is being fought trough solicitors. I can tell you that the 'reserve' value (not 100% sure what that means yet!) was £3700. I figure the best way to get another lag would be to get one with a dead engine (mine still starts perfectly!)

So, if anoyne has a dead DCI lag, you know all those turbo failiures :rofl:

Hi there, if you are looking for a repairable car, pick up a copy of Car Parts Mart (available from larger newsagents - 99p), it has loads of salvage dealers & auctions - here's a few;
Universal Vehicle Services | The vehicle auction specialist
Raw2K Online Car Auctions - Salvage, Auctions, Partfinder, Dismantlers, Sell your car, Bid online, Insurance write off, Vehicle auction
Forest Auto Salvage - Vehicle Salvage and Used Vehicle Parts / Spares

I can see you having a bit of difficulty in sourcing a repairable car which has been written-off due to the fact that most write-offs which need an under-bonnet rebuild will be due to an engine bay fire or a heavy front-end impact which may have twisted the chassis.

Another avenue which you may wish to consider is to sell-on your laguna for salvage - Renault World is a Renault garage based in Ilford operating throughout the London area are advertised in the same publication as actively seeking damaged vehicles. This would save you a lot of heartache and expense for what would probably still be classed as a category C or D repaired write-off (which isn't worth as much).

Its up to you, but all the best whatever you decide.

Paul:)
