My blue mk2 Laguna 2.0 dCi

Post by mk2LagunaOC »

Hi there everyone didn't know where to post this and here's some pictures of my mk2 Laguna DCi 150 I bought 6 months ago.

My new SD & USB device so I can keep the standard stereo and sat nav except the device isn't too brilliant in my opinoin as you have to have a maximum of a 4GB SD card and the same for USB and you have to save them as CD - 6 etc like an CD Changer for it to work and also takes a while to load other than that it's ok.

& the decent size boot

Image

Somebody previously added drivers lights (don't know if you can see them there next to the fog lights).

Image

Also bluetooth somebody previously added (above the centre vents).

Here's pictures of my homemade logo decals (hopefully I will have proper professional ones done soon I'm trying to get in contact with somebody from I used to be in to ask where he gets them from).
Side window (pic 1) & Back window (pic 2)

An update with new wheels except one side has standard alloy on as one is buckled didn't know until getting wheel changed so I've taken a picture of side with new wheel on I had put on, on Thursday last week.

Before with 16's on

Image

After with 17" Louxor Alloys (didn't know which pictures were the best so I've uploaded 2).

Nice looking example you have there , we have previously had two 1.9 Dci laguna II's a Dynamique hatch and most recently a Privelage estate . This was a fantastic car and in the 5 1/2 years of owning it never had any issues other than consumables etc , we sold it 6 months ago to a work colleage who loves it . We replaced it with a Laguna III 2.0 Dci 175 bhp dynamique S with a few tasty options on and it really is quite a machine with a good mix of power / economy . It's nice to have another Renault owner on the forum .

Thanks Mark I try and really look after the car as it was before as well all the defects it's got is just 5 small car park dinks in which obviously you can't help and bumper had respray not too brilliant not noticeable thank god and that's it otherwise I was pleased with the car especially when it has 86,000m when I bought, now stands at over 87,500m only use it for short distance as work is only 2 miles, I do try and take the car out on longer journeys but you still got to think of the costs of going somewhere :(.

What sort of mpg figures does it return ? My wifes old 1.9dci would get mid 40's in mixed driving , not bad considering the size of the car :-D

Mines about the same on average but I only generally use around town etc so I'm only returning roughly about 34 to 38mpg but on the motorway was roughly about 45 to 50mpg which isn't too bad.

Out of the two laguna II's we've had the Dynamique had 17" alloys on and returned mid thirties but the privelage had 16" alloys and it returned mid 40's and the ride was better too . The Dynamique was amazing on the motorway though it would sit at 100mph and it felt like 50 mph and totally effortless in 6th gear . Great cars the laguna I nearly got another Laguna II estate myself but decided against as I don't like piling loads of tools and stuff into cars they soon get scruffy .

So 17's haven't done me any favours then but it always depends on the tyres as I found Michelin were the best tyres to go for expensive I know but the car feels totally different and improves everything MPG, handling, smoother and best bit of all the performance :D. Soon as I bought Michelin for my old 2.0 Turbo Dynamique Techno I don't buy budget tyres anymore hell no, I try and look for the best deal on Michelin tyres as well cost me just under £100 each in which I thought wasn't too bad excluding fitting though. I've only bought 2 for the front for now though 1 hasn't been fitted due to one 16" standard alloy still on cause I had to buy another as from the set of 4 on the 17's was buckled so now I bought another and refurbing that alloy hopefully will be on the end of this week.

The 17"s really suit your Laguna , I bet the 2.0 Turbo could shift :twisted:

I'm well impressed with the looks now since adding phase 1 alloys to it. I might add a twin exhaust in a months time and next probably Monday in which should be coming is a new JVC stereo being delivered so new inside photos of my car will be soon!!!
