Cheers. It's a manual.
One thing I did remember was when changing down from 5th the gear knob didn't automaically spring into neutral, below 4th but rather it sat below 5th.
I did question them about this as I thought it was odd but the guy said it was normal. I didn't find it a problem and it seemed fine when in and out of the other gears. I thought if anything it may just need adjusting.
I guess I fell in love with the car and wouldn't let this stop me but I have since read this is a common, minor gripe that could be put right. As I'm buying from trade if I uncover any major problems they can have it back I guess if it's not fit for purpose.
