If you enjoy driving you won't want to drive the high torque diesels with the 6MT

The extra cogs in the new 8-speed ZF auto suit the narrow rev band of the high torque diesels much, much better.
I know you lot on the other side of the pond have some sort of bizarre hankering for sticks, but I've driven both side by side and the 6MT versions suck from a drive-ability point of view, as you all to easily come out of the narrow rev band of the diesel engines. They become very frustrating to drive after a while.
