lower lip on sill looks very crinkly to me - like it's a poorly plug-welded replacement. Paint looks a bit horrid too - not original. Hard to tell from the photo though.

If you're after spending lots of money but on a good Renault, this looks better value to me 8) ....

What do you think guys?

The colour is rancid, and I'd be looking for some closeups of those sills. :wink:

I'd agree with MrB - surely getting one from France, or Spain, Belgium, Holland etc is going to be a lot less hassle?

Same here, surely one from France is easier and less risky?
