<strong>All I can say is, WHAT IS WRONG WITH USING THE CLUTCH. It's what you need to do to drive manual cars. At least the Selespeed system was not programmed by Microsoft - Imagine getting the "blue screen of death" at 80mph!
EVERYONE, Buy the manual. The gear change is great, clutch very light and it as smooth as you want...

The selespeed was tailored for my needs and a dream come true WAS! You are right the clutch on the new 2.0 JTS is very nice I know this because I have one outside, unfortunately the speedo stopped working and it constantly says ebd+abs failure, tells me when I am low on fuel and I find this screen intrusive and annoying to say the least.
'Limited range' it came out with the other day aehem, low fuel, for gods sake I have a fuel gauge is there any need for useless pointless information that you already know? from the petrol gauge.
I must say the are some things on the revision that are really great like, build quality is much better,lovely smooth ride, quieter engine
,better seats, but I really don't think it's better on fuel and they IMHO can keep that bloody stupid little screen it's awful like having two women in the front with you wink
