Why do you want a 240D auto??? I am having this exact conversation with another person....they are dead slow! I have a 300D na auto...just yesterday climbing hills n altitude I was down to 45mph on a highway that has a 65mph speed limit...that is with a 77hp car...this one is 65hp..
I live in Central Florida where the 5 tallest mountains are at Disney World.

Sweet....guess you never plan on leaving town in it?

I thought I would never leave Cali!....then the world smacked me in the head with a curve ball and now I live where it snows and in elevation... I am so glad you life is totally laid out that this car will never need to leave Disneyland....
