Now that is useful Prospect and many thanks. I hope I can become as knowledgeable about these as I was about the GT4s. Thank you.
I wondered why she 'stalled' when rolling into a roundabout the other day.
I guess it is all a question of experience? Doesn't seem very logical to me!!
Thanks again

Part of the instructions I gave to my son when teaching him how to drive a manual transmission. 🙂 I'm currently taking a truck driving course and have given this exact advice to some of my classmates who've struggled with missing shifts. Gear location is a little different but the process is the same. Let the stick do some of the work for you.

Leave in 3rd gear(or 2nd, if going slow) with the clutch out(engaged) and it will stay running if you want it through those pesky traffic circles. The more you drive it, the more you'll learn, adjust to, and grow to appreciate most of the very things about the car that are currently bothering you. Keep reading through your owner's manual. Don't be afraid to ask the brain trust of this forum for additional info.

Just found this thread by having a look at what Jeffd posted, so thought I’d better pop in and say ‘Hi!’

The CRZ isn’t actually mine, I bought it for my lad last September, he turned 17 at the back end of October, and passed his test yesterday - he’s now ‘solo’, so watch out! It’s an Ocean Pearl Blue GT.

We’re up in Northumberland; there’s at least one other CRZ somewhere locally, as we see her park up in Hexham pretty much daily, and my lad passed another whilst on his test - though he was in the instructor’s Polo, so a wave wouldn’t have meant anything (he did say it was pretty well ‘Mugan’d up’ with spoiler and central tailpipe)!

Non plaudite. Modo pecuniam jacite!

Fn2s come with 200 horses stock so lost a little more than 20. Iím not chasing hp though with this car. I had my fun with the type R.

Iím in Birmingham, West Midlands.

Will get some picks up when Iíve given it a good clean. Does this forum offer any club stickers?
