Another wildly happy 240D slushbox owner here .

Yes, they're not quick so if you need that, DON'T BUT IT because flooring it all the time will over rev. the engine and make it dribble oil every where .

I drive mine at 65 all over America, it slows down on the steeper freeway hills .

You have to be aware when you merge into the freeway as it's not often you'll be going over 50MPH at the time .

Doable but drive defensivly ! .

Maybe get a test ride in one first ? .

The light alloy disc wheels really do make it nicer, I have a spare set if anyone is interested .
