Re: GC CRD with 8-speed?

In the netherlands, adding the 8-speed will also decrease the price significantly. the price of cars in NL are mostly based on how much CO2 they produce. so a dirty car with pre-tax price of 40K will cost as much as 80K, and a clean one as little as 48K.
so adding an 8-speed can save 10K on the base price. that’s why people drive eco cars here..

i’m waiting for an 8-speed to trade the current wk2 in. but they better move on. competition is getting interesting..

Re: GC CRD with 8-speed?

I reckon CRD 8 Speed will be fantastic, 5 speed CRD value likely to drop comparable to the 4spd vs 6 spd falcons. there are few reports of harsh downshifts in 8 speed 300C, I am guessing these will problems will be ironed out. Also Chrysler claiming double digit fuel economy improvement with 8 speed. I am getting about 9L/100km, so lets say 10% improvement , that is 8.1L./100km, fantastic.

Re: GC CRD with 8-speed?

5 speed values drop by how much? It's still a good gearbox as is the 4 speed which I also own. I guess it depends if the price for the 8 speed goes up a lot.
