Thanks for that info Motec.

Geoff, if it is a four speeder, it is not an inspiring car to drive. The design of the ratios would have to go back to the fifties, and take into account mountainous driving, with very low 1st and 2nd gear ratios, and a huge gap to third gear. Most of the time, you can start off in 2nd, and switch to the next higher gear fairly quickly.

I prefer the automatic version. BTW, my comments relate to the 108, 109 and 111 models. Regards Styria

No problem Styria but if you have a manual you have all the parts to allow a modern 5 or 6 speed to be fitted as you can buy 6 speed manual kits for pagoda models.

Six speed!!!! Now you're talking.
Otherwise what the Godfather was talking about applies to W116 manuals also
