better late than never, NEW 16 Plate Blue100 hdi chiller van
#1
Well what can i say, after 3 great years with our 63 plate chiller van (90ps) getting up to 147,000 pretty much trouble free miles.
We have bought another one , this one being a 16 plate Blue100 semi-auto, only had it 10 weeks and we have gone over the 10,000 miles mark,

Pictures to follow soon .

so far all good, much prefer it in manual mode, if trying to get a swift move on it has a habit of dropping a gear putting you out of the power zone into 4000RPM of the gear below in A, in M it only drops if you do foot to floor past the natural point of full throttle theres a stiffer bit past it,


couple things, do they have smaller fuel tanks on the ADBlue models etc




here are some pictures

I find my auto is more suited to rolling along and chilling out. I know what you mean about the eager kickdown though - it will drop from 6th to 4th if you stomp on it on the motorway, sometimes in two stages, which does leave you sitting there waiting for it. To be fair though, it wouldn't be any quicker to change manually. I'd find the M mode a lot of work, not worth it for the occasional kickdown when you don't want it. I'd also expect fuel economy to suffer if the gear changes are manual.

You sound like you're in a lot more of a hurry than me.

love how i can now do 70 on dual carriageways, as we have no motorways here in east anglia
