    Re: New shape Jimny auto questions

    Interesting,because in that case there is unlikely to be any difference in the transmission control software.
    I wonder if the software has the ability to adapt to a particular driving styleÖ?

    If you are running the tyre pressures that low if the outside temperature dropped over night it can trigger the TPMS.

    It sells there in top spec for slightly less than a S11 Scorpio so pricing of around 400k is probably realistic.
