    Hi all!

    I'm looking for your opinion on replacing my gearbox. Gear ratios in the current one are way too long for me.
    I frequently find myself in between gears when in slowish traffic. 6'th gear is unusable since 2000 revs in 6'th gives 125 km/h and is slow to accelerate. Third gear at 5000 revs gets me to 140 km/h.
    With three people on board and a full trunk i have to downshift until i get over 2400 revs up a slight hill. The engine load is just too much; sounds like a loaded truck crawling up a hill.
    Engine is fine.
    So, what do you guys think? Witch one would you choose and why?

    Thanks!
