    Default Greetings from Brummy Land

    Morning gents and ladies!

    Just picked up an 04 (pre face lift) 3.0 CDti Signum Auto in the Design trim. VERY pleased with it on the 42m commute to the office. Can't believe that someone would have paid 27k for it brand new! As this is my first automatic and diesel, just a few questions:

    1. Is it safe to move the gear selector from D to the '+' and '-' manual mode when moving? The handbook says nothing on this and just wanted to check. Presumably I use this when, for example, overtaking on an A road and needing more control over the gear?

    2. Are there any VX garages that people would recommended for servicing in the Sutton/Great Barr area? Would be loathed to take it to Lookers (or equivilant) for upkeep.

    No doubt more questions to come over the next few weeks.

    Cheers.

    smith's of ilkeston are good as a main dealer, but i use an indipendant vx service centre also in ilkeston as they use genuine vx part's and dont charge the earth for labour....

    smith's of ilkeston - 01159322387

    vx service centre - 01159328404

    both are not that far from ng7, i am ng8 and they are both a few min's drive for me

    it is safe to use the + & - when driving, this is so you can use the box like a manual plus if you put it in and boot it and leave it it will change gear at a higher rev range , or you can do it manually ..for the fast gettaway ...its kinda the sports mode for the box ....the only advice i would give is have the gearbox oil changed i know it isnt a service item on these boxses but it makes for a better drive ...............
