Hi guys

Im new to the forums, so i thought i would say hi..

i just bought a ef xr6 wagon 5 speed the other day. I was actually looking for a auto one...but couldnt find one.

I read that the 5 speeds are quite rare...

Anyway, would anyone be keen to swap there auto one for my manual one.....??? Even a auto sedan..

Cheers

hehehe

A lot of people on this site will tell you your mad to lose the auto. But I can see where your coming from. If you do a lot of city driving etc I would have an auto as well.

Good luck trying to find the swap car.

if your going to do alot of city driving the auto might be more comfatable and less of a hassile but be aware, alot of auto boxes are prone to braking around the 200,000km mark, and cost alot more then a manual to replace or fix. also a manual e-series will give you better fuel efficiency in city driving from my experiance..
