Is it leaking, can you see any leak??
If ther is I'd check the sump pugs done up tight.. Otherwise tell there where to go!! £200, what a joke!!

Most diesels leak a bit. Fairly normal to see a drop or two every so often. Not so sure about petrol models though.

Best advice for Megane owners: sell it before it bankrupts you!
