    You could always just do it the old fashioned way and reset your odo when you fill up, see how many miles you do on the tank and do the (simple) math. Much less hassle than fitting an OBC I reckon.

    Dunno, maybe it would be benefitial for fuel consumption or something. I just don't imagine it would be much fun driving a 318 in 6th.....
    ITS A 318IS with an m44 engine NOT A 318I, thats why, very high reving at 80mph, 6th gear would be an overdrive for motorway driving, and still have the performance of an m44 engine!

    easier to put the rear gearbox by a diesel car. sixth gear is about the same as a direct five-speed.DoJb7PSgF44.jpg
