Yea car is still under warranty !!! You know if anyone else has had theres changed under warranty or not ? Thank You ...;)
I got mine changed under warranty. Definitely a few others on here have.

The material (leather?) around the thumb grips kind of went all sticky and peeled away on mine.

Renault changed it with no arguments.
Its a common failing any dealership will do it if they disagree tell them to ring Renaul uk and get them to autorise the work.

If I offer to pay a little could they get my a 172 wheel ? :)

Yep but it woulnd't be a bit extra its a lot extra.
Migh as well get one from a breakers yard cheaper an dget Renault to fit it instead of the stock one when they replace it.
