    Out of interest what garage do you take yours to? I've got the cambelt and a few other things I want to get done but most Renault 'specialists' I have called don't even have the correct tools to do it!

    Hi Paul I was reading your build thread and did notice your username! I'm hoping to free up some money as I'm looking into buying a building plot to build my own house!

    I've got a traffic van as well but just take that to a local garage as it's not in warranty now. I did phone millers but they wanted £986

    Yeh a fair bit, bilstein suspension, h&r arb front and rear, lots of poly bushes, csl reps and the list goes on! It's on eBay at the moment! Are you on cutters? Here's a link https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/282567518937

    Welcome to the forum. It’s a great forum, with many helpful members and professional moderators. I’ve not seen one incident of trolling yet. It makes such a difference on a forum when you’re not in fear of being lambasted for asking a stupid question.

    The car looks great Paul. Mine will be heading for the expensive belt service soon too

    Well nice mate. Again totally biased. Still think they got it so right with this car. You'll definitely miss it but hopefully the money will go towards something else you'll really appreciate too.

    Used to be on Cutters but stopped posting there five years or so ago.

    There are a few pics of mine on here:

    Love them so much.

    Welcome in mate. 2 lovely looking cars you have there. If you haven't done so already stick your number down on the R27 register.
