    yup not a single thing , just be aware the diesel autos don have the same load lugging capacity as the manual.

    Yes realise fuel will be an issue at moment 2.2 I-CTDI manual cost me 14p a mile used as taxi would expect auto to go up to 17p a mile but auto make job so much easier specially in York traffic. But will also need to think about the 3p a mile difference as over 4yrs this would equate to another car.
    Cheers for feedback guys this really helps

    Dave another major advantage to the diesel auto is the position of the fuel filter. In the Manual transmission cars it in the engine bay , on the auto it next to the fuel tank with superb access making the changes really easy.
