Ha ha. Shame it takes nearly 200,000 miles to "run in" the gearbox. Oils/level etc made no difference to mine but I too think it is gradually getting better though I am only at 148,000. Or perhaps is it that we are just getting better at compensating for it :biglaugh:I use a fuchs 80/90 oil in my 20v. The gear change on mine is much improved in the last couple years mainly due to the high mileage 184000.
