    ive got a Laguna 2.0 turbo. Rare car and decent spec.. put 12months mot on with all repairs and now can't shift it :tearsofjoy:

    So if I can't sell... are they any good as a doner car for a Clio/kangoo project. I know they are like 175bhp and not like Meganes but a few tweeks should see 200bhp and a fun project.

    Worth the effort? :down::up:

    Never mind, didn't take long to find it on gumtree!

    As sad as it is I think it's maybe a little rich, I didn't get much more for my newer GT.

    The 205 is basically a 225, not sure about yours tbh. Want a swap for a PD130 passat?!

    I actually don't have a decent pic, it's on 197k but loads of history and a tow bar for towing broken clios about!

    ETA, I found this one!

    Moon miles :tearsofjoy: bet it still drives well and all. Don't think it's for me mate would only try and sell on again and thinking might get stuck with it. Means if I'm stuck with the Laguna might be able to do something with it.

    It's a bit of an awkward car really. Doesn't fit anywhere sort of thing so the market is limited, I actually like it.

    Most folk would go for the diesel equivalent

    I know it's a bit old man car I think.

    It drives pretty well and ain't the slowest of barges. I have a diesel one aswell so if I did use as a doner then I could spec up the diesel with it, would prefer to punt save the hassle :smile:
