Out of interest, what the insurance cost? My son will be driving next year, and if the older Twingos are cheap to insure, I'd certainly consider buying one for him.

Have a look on eBay. There are a couple of breakers on there that have listed the parts you need – dashboard surround and head unit. I don't know if you'll need a new loom, but it wouldn't surprise...

I know this is an old thread, but it has been an interesting read that resonates with my recent experiences.

A few months ago, my Twingo TCe sporadically wouldn't start at random times; the engine...

I've done 3.3k. Our main car, now 10 years old, is only just nudging 21k.

Perhaps we need to get out a bit more!?

There are now conversion kits available, but not yet in the UK as far as my research has come up with.

Probably two recalls in one. Only takes a short time to do. Whilst you're at it, you could ask for your dashboard to be flashed so it displays the ambient temperature, if it doesn't already!

Hello, and a belated welcome.

I've had two recalls of my 2015 (65) Twingo. The first was because some people could not reattach the bonnet correctly after removing it, so an additional bracket was...

All you need to do is remove the trim from around the dash. See picture.

It's easy to do, and once removed you'll be able to access the radio's fixings.

Yes, I had the letter a couple of weeks ago. Took the Twingo in last Wednesday, and it was fixed very quickly. Letter from Renault attached.

I think I've worked it out after watching it being done on a new model Smart ForTwo. I appreciate that the two cars have somewhat different trims, but the principles should be similar.

This was a feature of Windows Phone 8.x, and was called Driving Mode. Never used it as I never use my phone whilst driving. It's not hard to do.

Rear bumper removal: VIDEO

Thought this might be useful for anyone needing to remove the rear bumper. The captions are in French, but it's clear to see what's going on.

Nilfisk. Name sounds odd, but it's a reputable, quality brand. They come highly recommended by people in the detailing world. Mine's a Nilfisk C105.6 pressure washer with which I am more than happy.

An opportunity to take amotorway journey in the Twingo still hasn't arisen for me. Maybe next summer!

No, it's KM only. An odd anomaly… but that the price we pay for having been metric for 45 years, but being indecisive about which units of measurements to use.

Saw a load of ForFours on the roads the other day; I'm beginning to like the look of them. And there was a lovely white Twingo in the High Street yesterday.

Had the additional bracket fitted this morning. Took about half an hour.

Attached the letter I received (highlighted area is mine) ... I wonder if it affects only certain Twingo models?

They're like buses around here. None to be seen, then suddenly they all come at once!

I see about the same number of ForFours on the road too. But I prefer the Twingo's look.
