Re: Just got my dream car, my very first xB
I could ONLY find automatic transmissions when I was looking. Found close to where I was looking in Missouri. A 2006 and a 2008. I got the 06 in black. The 08 was some kind of ****ed up blue, and the rear brake hub was squealing. As it turns out, I should have gotten it, as I ended up having to replace the front frame bracket and 1 motor mount, at nearly 2 grand. MO throws down a briny salt slush at any hint of snow, and my ride started life as a commercial vehicle, I often create lavish fantasies about the secret government work it must have been involved with. Either that or it was a donut delivery box. Either way, I'm happy with the mpg increase over my Jeep Wrangler.
I really wish I could have found a standard, but life continues.
