Have a 3.0 with 2500 miles on and I have experienced all of the things you described plus a very distrubing throttle stickyness. Have an appointment on Thursday with my dealer. Hope they can shed some light on some of this. My '98 2.8 never did any of this.

Does anyone with a new manual 3 litre think the gearchange is a bit lumpy from 1st to 2nd?
I also experience a clunk/rattle from the engine/gearbox when I depress the clutch at low speeds ie. in first gear rolling to a stop and depressing the clutch.
The same clunk only louder happened in traffic tonight. I was in first gear moving very slowly in a trafic jam I gave a little bit of throttle and then took my foot completely off of the gas and immediately got a clunk as the car went from acceleration to slowing down.
The car has only done 1000 miles and I know it wasn't present for the first 600.
Is it just loosening up? My 1.9 never did this.. is it to be expected with a bigger engine? am I getting paranoid? ...

It still doesn't stop me driving it every spare moment I get === vrrooom :-0

thanks for any advice
