Transmission

automatic > manual
A manual transmission that is placed in the BMW 3-Series F30 Gran Turismo F34 320i 184HP manual is more simpler construction and is cheaper in use but it is less comfortable because the driver has to put on clutch and change speeds and it can be lot of inconvenience in a bussy city traffic where we have lots of frequent stop and go conditions. An automatic gearbox which is put in the Citroen with 6 – speeds transmission is in our opinion better one to have.
