    Blimey, that seemed easy enough. I bet that surprised you?

    I'd phone them about the Clutch and Bearing mate, at least you'd know then.

    Nice one Ian - bet you're happy. One thing mine is going in for in January is a notchiness in my gear changes, not 3rd in particular and not as bad as yours by the sounds of it.

    Correct me if I'm wrong anyone, but is the 6 speed in the 3.0 CDTi a different one to the 6 speed in the 1.9 CDTi/2.0T? I know mine is an F40, but thought the one in the 3.0 CDTi was different?

    Right, just wanted to check - to see if we can compare 'faults' with gearboxes between all the 6 speeds. I'll have a dig in my TIS as I'm sure the six speed in the 3.0 CDTi is different.
