Why change the Auto to a manual?
Simple, its a car, and its going to be driven.
The Old XC does around 170km a day. With the C4 110 was 2,800.
That was not only a little noisy with the exhaust, but expensive on
The 5 speed is much nicer to drive (once I change the oil), but the axle
tramp is spoiling the whole experience... I don't want to go tramp rods as this limits ground clearance (often an off-road vehicle). I'll have to
go and visit my mates at Pedders, see what they think of the rear
