    306 XSi AUTO Experiences?

    It's been a while.....I missed you all. Have been watching lots but have had nothing to say. But I am back, with avengence..

    In order to complete my purchase of a Yamaha R6, I have been duly "advised" by my better half that a compromise must take place. Get rid of the Mi16 and get an Auto as Renae has not learnt and will not learn to 'stir the box'.

    I am going to go newer this time round (less temperamental) and am looking at a 2000 model (no earlier XSi Auto since N5 update) XSi auto. Will get one for around $23,000 by the looks of it with low kms.

    Basically, "Share the Knowledge" stuff;
    1) Are the Auto's OK in the N5 306's??
    I have always been suspicious of auto's in comparison to the ease of owning / less care needed for a manual.
    2) Any body / interior / motor things to look out for?? (Have read Rek's & Pugrambo's comments when they were looking for a GTi-6)
    3) Looking at the spec sheet for 2001 models on the Pug OZ website, engine is XU10J4 as shared on the Series 2 Mi16. Mainly uprated BOSCH system and an 'R' instead of 'Z' on the end!?!?!?!?

    Also, pls spread the word that my beast might be up for sale. 1994 Mi16, 97,000kms. Tint + Alpine CD. Timing belt is DONE!!!
    See Gallery for Pics.

    Thanks as always

    Sure you couldn't tempt her in a GTi6?

    I put a deposit on a 97 model in mint condition for $24,900...
