    Not being a facebook user I'd never have seen this. But thanks to @Mr LaurenceI've just put a deposit on it. I've used man maths/logic to justify, which I might explain on my cars thread once it's been delivered (end of next week). Or I may just be sobbing quietly in the corner!

    2010 Laguna DCi estate with MOT to Jan 2021 for only £450... https://www.gumtree.com/p/renault/renault-laguna-1.5-dci-diesel-/1377676976
  7. Active (1.1), Dynamic (1.2) & Eleganza (1.2). Plus specials like the Mamy & Alessi. I'd avoid the Eleganza purely due to the heater/climate control set-up. The spindle from the motor through the side of the heater box WILL break. It's part of the heater assembly (not available separately), which is over £1000 and involves taking the dash out, which in turn means taking the doors off. There is a company which says it has a workaround, or you can do what most do and bodge it to permanent max or min heat! There are worse cars, but I pretty much agree with that. No feel from the steering (no worse than most of its contemparies though), clunky dash mounted gearchange etc.....
  8. I've never understood why the need for a tacho depends on mgw/train weight. The chap who picked up the 1800 I've just sold with a 3.5t truck said he'd have done nearly 600 miles that day by the time he dropped it off, with four stops around the country to load/unload but probably no decent stop for rest.

  12. At least the sender is on the side of an Allegro (um, sorry, I mean VP) fuel tank so nothing else needs to be moved to replace it. Initial test would be to pull the wire off the sender and earth it; if the gauge goes to full the sender is dead (which is probably the case). Depending on corrosion levels it's then 'just' a case of knocking the locating ring round with a hammer and screwdriver to release the sender.
