i dont have the economy meter tho :(

one question why does the needle bounce so much when changing gear? Mine bounces a little bit from 0 - 30 km/hr but then its quite steady.. [?]

Yes it´s manual gearbox. I think all of the "never" 200 has econmymeter. i haven´t seen one whitout it yet.

HEHE....the needle just follow the rearwheels when they are "spinning" on the road when i change gears. I drove at snow as i said so the rearwheels loose the grip. in first gear i took it easy so the wheels dont just loose grip all the time.
Thats why the needle jumps so much! [;)]

Very Good Unc...

With a 2.0 L engine a manual is a must – and I’ll pass on any snow driving, thanks…[xx(]

Hmm, 0-100kmh (0-60mph) in about 14-15 seconds. That's good considering road conditions. Nice car, Onkel.

[:D] Well i got new wintertyres on the car! With the old one´s it would have taken twice as much time to 100 km/h! [;)]
