Which Gearbox

I have done a search but found nothing, but I seem to remember reading in a thread recently that the gearbox in the 159 1.9Jtdm is the same as used by the 2.2 JTS, and I assume that applies to the 2.2 JTS used in the Spider as well. Can someone enlighten me please?

The reason I ask is that the gearchange in my 159 is nowhere near as smooth as it is in our Spider.

I would expect the gear ratios to be different on petrol and diesel models, simply due to where the power is.

Try changing the gearbox oil, I've recently switched to redline mt90 and its made a huge improvement to the smoothness of the gear change
