Bonj to the Wind family! Empty Bonj to the Wind family!

Hey there!

Name's Llew. Picked up a very tasty 1.2 TCe 100 GT Line. 

Totally smitten in the space of the last week I've owned her. 

Completed a 225 mile journey from Wisbech to Durham with absolute ease. Mega comfortable. Lots of toys!

Possible project steps are to blacken the front and rear badges and the silver front air ducts..

Few minor niggles, but nothing major that can't be resolved.   Bonj to the Wind family! 1f604

Got month end money tied up with cambelt change. 

Although it's got a decent service history, there's no record of a timing belt change, and I don't want to risk it, even with 62k on the clock. .

Welcome to the Forum 

I had to get the cam belt, water pump changed on mine as well....cost £350 all in...although the garage underestimated the time it would take !! They charged me 2 hours labour, but it took them 5 hours 😂

I bought stick on rigid black plastic Renault badge covers off ebay..I found that the front one looks great, but the rear one against the chrome Wind writing wasn't so good...so took it back off !! 😂😂
