Re: Vel Satis 3.5 Initiale Newbie

Thanks for that Olly. I will keep it as it is then because the shunt is only at start up - and on the road she is very smooth. I do not rev him at all but I do find if I snick it into neutral then D the shunt disappears. He is heading towards clutch time I imagine at around 60k miles I think......does anyone know what the life of the clutch is? One thing I do notice is an annoying hunting around the gears sometimes as the box tries to select the right gear - it's not a problem just a bit annoying.

Just returned from a long trip five up in excellent comfort.....but the stereo is poor, not reception or CD controller just the speakers. Need to replace these. Lots of admiring looks on the car as we drove around too
