Got my new XTR EGS today fot taxi use, just getting used to semi-auto gearbox but first impressions good, just hope I can keep it clean inside and out-it seems to attract dust inside, hope it attracts customers too !!!:whistle:

Hi. Don't be shy about posting pictures of it. I'm curious about the gear changes. No clutch? Just pull or push shifter to desired gear for up and down shifting?
2010 Berlingo Multispace HDi 110 with FAP. Persamos green.

Wow! PSA installing a little bit modified Sexodrive gearbox in it's cars Smile
In fact it's a simple 6-speed gearbox with electrodrives for clutch fork and gear selectors.

No clutch-just turn the selector on the dash and away you go. Paddles on steering for changing up or down gears can also be used whilst in the manual and auto settings,also has stop/start feature-I was sure that there was "Grip Control" as standard but apparently not, although after reading mixed reviews about this feature I don't think it will be missed. There is also cruise control and speed limiter as standard, though.Wink

Congrats on your Excellent Choice, I have had mine now for 3 weeks and still getting used to it, I believe the ESP it has on is a basic form of traction control, but its good enough for my use, I had that Kind of ESP in a Xara Picasso 110 bhp and it got me out a lot of trouble in the snow.
after comming from a full Auto I keep Rolling lol It does have an Hill assist but only for 2 secs, and some times I forget, as you know you have to Lift you Foot off the Accel pedal when Gear changing as I am used to that now, I thinks its is Supeb, its a Car that been Crying out for a Auto box, returning about 50 mpg town and Motorway work at present, again Nice choice for a Taxi I dont think you will be disapointed.

lThanks for that, Getting only approx 45mpg at present but hope to get more as I get used to it. Different comments regarding using paddles even in full auto mode, I do not want to try it in case its incorrect info, any idea, So it is better ro back off on the gas when auto changes gear? Thought so as well but takes time to guess when gears changing.

YEs Just lift your Foot off the accel a bit, not alll the way as when it changes gear it kill power a bit, that what apears to cause the flat spots, it changes gear from about 2200 rpm unless You are in Man or the engine is loaded, I regular use the paddles mostly down hills but the car does change down for you to engine brakes going down hills , as according to the manual it reverts back to full Auto in 2 secs if you have not operated the paddles in that time, The wife says I am getting better with the gear changing now, so if she approves things look good lol,, I know if you are not used to if the are big flat spots on Accell between 1 -3..

Noticed flat spots ,which I missed on test drive- also impressed with hill assist. Must be getting better at this auto game, now up to +50mpg. Only gripe is it goes into neutral when sitting too long in "auto", but selector still shows "auto"-can be a "red face" moment when trying to move away.
