    Default Why is 1st gear so low in the 6 speed CDTi

    It's a nightmare trying to get away quickly in 1st gear - It seems no sooner is the car moving than I need second - does anyone else find this or is it just me?

    It needs to be!

    The 150 has a comparatively large turbo, so the ratio needs to be short to get the power in and the wheels turning without frying the clutch.
