Should I cancel and rather wait for the 2013 batch with ZF gearbox , or is the existing 5 speed adequate?
What do you guys think?
An additional gear or two would be useful. RPM's are well over 2000 at 100km/h (that is max allowable speed here on the east coast). An additional cog would give better economy. Due to the superb torque of the engine, low down grunt is excellent. My only gripe is the manual overide logic. If you nudge the shifter into 2nd, the car will drive between 1st and second, shift to the 3rd, the computer will pick best gear between the 3. I would love the ability over-ride the system to start off in 2nd, especially in the wet. The CRD however is excellent and you're gonna love driving it.
