Hello searchsoul, glad for you. Thanks to Voyager for correcting my assumption about the gearbox. I hadn't driven a unit with that particular gearbox before (I own(ed) 2 Citroens with the 4 speed full auto) and the C5 petrol that I currently drive has the 6 speed auto. I'm happy Voyager contrasted the design philosophies between Jap and Euro (especially Citroen) because many people call these "problems" when they are not. I hope u enjoy the car and let us know your impressions of it after collection it.

Hey voyager,

Is there a trick for smooth transmission for the c5 diesel? The car arrived today and I'm having trouble getting used to it...

hello again, Searchsoul,

could you let us know,

under what conditions you are experiencing greatest discomfort (most having to get used to)?

eg,

going upslope

pulling away when the traffic lights turn green

etc

then we can try to be more targetted in our advice :-)

Mostly pulling away from a standstill. Seen many people over taking me impatiently already haha. Now sometimes I just whack like a taxi driver, but then the shifting to 2nd gear creates the huge "laaaag and then jerk" thing which I'm really not used to.

I've also been playing around to try to make smoother transitions by anticipating the gear change and "half clutching" the accelerator and putting down my foot again. Seems to work sometimes..

Any advice?
