Hi, I have the same problem with the 5th gear, but i don't think i would want to change the ratio's to increase the rev's by 25% this will surely have a marked increase in fuel consumption, as you can't get something for nothing ? also while the 5th gear is a pain in the neck, i would only suspect that on general touring the problem ? while very significant only really happens about 20 to 30 % of the time. Therefore the marked increase in fuel consumption by having the ratio's changed is in my opionion not worth it ?.
However i have been looking at the Chip Change ?? arrangement and i think if it can be done without invalidating the warranty that would be my prefered route. It appears that the 2.8JTD is offered in Europe with a 2 different outputs the higher output only seems to be available in Europe I wonder if it is possible to have this done in the UK, is it possible to have this upgrade applied hear ??
