    Just out of interest mate, did they give you a seperate price for having the gear oil changed or was it just one price to have all your work done?

    I am sure it will be ready and it'll be nice and smooth too.

    Isn't the fix for notchy gears to not fill the g/box with the stated amount of oil..? Could be worth mentioning to them, the exact amount is on thus forum somewhere.

    Massive difference mate - mine had been rattlling for 000's of miles and had certain characteristics, like some rattling, vibration (I couldn't do 30mph in 4th without in labouring like crazy etc...) but since its been done its like a new car, totally smooth and quiet (for a diesel).
