I just remembered another bad point: the screenwash  bottle level sensor likes to claim it's low (it's not) and again, sets the info display to SERVICE. Another little thing that has bugged me, but not enough to get to grips with it.

I realise I have been most remiss in this matter, and having spent much of the afternoon's light washing said chariot, I can only offer these two money* shots

I will be applying a vacuum cleaner to its softer parts tomorrow, so hope to grace you with some interior shots too.

I should explain. S1 XMs have a reputation for having properly comfortable front seats. I'm not arguing with this. I've just bought one. I have only done around 650 miles in it though, so this is only an opinion based upon scant experience of the XM:

 

The Vel Satis front seats are in a completely different class. I am simply gobsmacked by their size and luxuriousness when I get in. The way they adjust is sublime.

 

And both their heaters work.

And some detail on the panel that covers up the parking brake mech:

A healthy spacesaver

 

P1040922.JPG

 

Some bits that need sorting:

 

The cover for the fan in the passenger footwell

P1040923.JPG

 

has lost it's velcro so this is now on show:

 

P1040935.JPG

 

The driver's seat has a bit of wear in the leather:

 

P1040938.JPG

 

Hamfisted removal of the front grille has broken some of its teeth:

 

P1040929.JPG

 

The offside lamp cluster has a few cracks in it, but remains legal:

 

P1040941.JPG

 

A handful of giffer dents and scrapes:

P1040930.JPG

P1040932.JPG

A piece of rubber seal is making a break for freedom from the front passenger door:

 

P1040936.JPG

 

And finally, some rodents have treated the bonnet sound insulation like Ikea:

I have test driven this presidential machine & can confirm that the seats are outrageously oversized, exceptionally comfortable & infinitely adjustable! It's just a brilliant place to sit.

Perhaps I can make this a little more tempting....

 

If the winner is a holder of two tickets, then they will also receive:

a full tank of unleaded AND

a copy of the Renault Electronic Parts Catalogue and Workshop Manual for the Vel Satis, in the form of two VMs that run Renault Dialogys.

(You will need a windows pc to make use of this, but the only other software you'll require is VMWare Workstation Player, which is free to download)
