Renaultsport Megane R26.R - fast fleet report 5

12,000 service for our Megane R.26R restored performance

Service due’ it flashed up. ‘Service due NOW’ it flashed up 1000 miles later. Alright already!

Wests of Bedford did the Mégane’s 12,000-mile first service very pleasantly. Parts: £70.26. Labour: £94.70. Environmental Waste Recycling Charges: £5. You do the math. Alright, I will: £169.96.

The R26.R’s brilliant seats, by the way, are by Sabelt not Recaro as I confidently and erroneously stated last month. My apologies to those lovely people in Italy.
