I've driven the X250 ducato 2.3L and Mk7 Ford Transit 2.2 TDCi, both of which I think drive slightly more car like than the Renault 2.5.
We've quickshift 6 and it's been no bother, 33,000 miles so far.
Touching wood, no parts needed other than cambelt [5 years old] and discs and pads.
Since having the truck remapped it's quieter and smoother, fuel economy hasn't really changed.
I will say that the renault feels perhaps slightly more basic/heavy than the above mentioned, but it also feels stronger!
I would be hard pushed to get back into a manual truck now, especially when doing the big run down to Millau with the cruise on!
