Hullo all - not trying to hijack the thread with nonsense about 3:1 cwp!! Just saying that's all......

"I start gingerly with the 3.55 and cannot imagine a hill start with a 3.1."

Well I don't have to imagine it and can start easily on really steep slopes forwards and backwards with no more clutch slip than normal. It is actually what the clutch is for!!

PPS have a lovely trip - I so wish I could afford to get mine over the pond as you have some stunning roads. I did 4k around California and the states close by but in a Golf convertible - not the same thing at all. Lucky old you...............
