    Ive got the tiptronic box on my Signum (3.0 V6 Diesel)

    Not had a single issue with it, smooth and changes without any hitches

    some guys on here have had nightmares with them, check the car has had the recall done, as there were issues with water entering the box and it costs LOTS, ie, another mortgage to put it right

    £2k or more for a new box if the recall was not done.

    IIRC the 3.0V6 has a different cooler set up.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I would avoid like the plague mate.
    This is only from personal experience though , I'm one a the guys who has had the proverbial nightmare.
    My box went klang , £2000 + then the vat - I decided to break the car and sell the parts , never buy an auto EVER again.
    Although some guys on here aint had any trouble , it's your choice , but the 3.2 market value has dropped like a lead balloon with the running costs , last thing you need is a massive repair bill on top of that .
