I've tried the SMG and I actually like it tbh and not sure where all the hate comes from for that box. OK it's not as smooth as a modern DCT\Auto but I actually prefer the more mechanical feel of that box and when you are going for it, it's superb.

I only do about 8-10k miles a year so I suppose you are right, it's only going to cost a few hundred quid more a year fuel. The annoying thing though is if you go on longer journeys for weekend trips away, apparently you spend more time in the petrol station then on the road which could get annoying.
