    How the hell did you get it home then? Cut a hole in the floor and did a Fred Flintstone? LOL

    Good on you for finding such a great deal though! It looks like it will be a great car!

    It's like computers isn't it? If you know what you're doing, you can get some real bargains that just need a few quid and a bit of time!

    I best stay off this thread now, otherwise I'll end up buying a car! :D

    That is a bargain

    we have a 2 year old megane cabriolet but would never have another Renault as so many things go wrong my partners mother has a 6 month old scenic and i swear it spends more time in the garage than on the road.

    Im surprised anyone buys them lol we had a scenic my god that was more trouble than it was worth and oh had a Renault Kangoo van and that was the same, couldnt wait to get rid of the bloody things..... The thing is we traded both renaults in and the guy who works for the garage had the scenic himself its due its MOT this month there is no way in hell that will pass!

    I think next time we will either get the new BMW 3 series coupe or maybe get something more practical like a new mondeo titanium x sport never have another renault though.

    Good and bad cars in all makes and models... I have owned a Renault which was amazing, it just carried on going and going. And now I have a Fiat, which has been fab! Two years of ownership and nothing majorly wrong. Yet my brother who has a new shaped Mondeo which has done nothing but break down!

    Lol and there is him looking down his snobby snout at me and my 12 year old car! At least mine is reliable :D
