Hello Boyweevil. I now drive my 08 pro ceed most of the time with my wife only diving when I am starting to get tired. She has always complained about the notchy gearbox and moans for the past on Octavia. She is eighty one and quite a lightweight, so I suppose she has to be excused.
It does feel like it wants a bit of heel and toe to help the synchromesh engage, like the gearboxes of long ago.
Don’t get me wrong about her being eighty one, she has driven for fifty five years and still never had a bump of any sort. I go to sleep whenever she takes over and I am a nervous passenger
