    Ahhhh Cant tell you about that box in particular. I had an F28 on my GTE and it was wicked

    Improved fuel consumption was the biggest factor for me, and knowing when you are driving the car, you have that 'extra mile' than the average car on the motorway. Deffo worth having IMO.

    i suppose you only use the 6th on motorways, but are they better throughout the lower gears, ratio wise?

    all the ratios are slightly different iirc but mainly for motorway speeds,

    They may as well be a 5 speed, at least on the diesel, because 1st is totally pointless, you're out of the power range by 10mph. Plus reverse is the wrong place.

    But, it's a nice box to use - smoother shifts than the F23, none of the 1st/2nd/1st synchro notchiness. Quieter than the F23 too.
