Tell me about it. I luv my 9000CS but the transmission is on its way out. 2500+ GBP for new transmission ! So my car with the leather seats, 200hp engine, CD player etc etc is beyond economical repair... If you're gunna buy one and your not technical, make sure you sell it before you reach the stage I did (160k miles). Dave So in answer to your subject question. Yes.
