the 1.9 xud is slow enough as it is i think you would end up with a, having to change down a gear for hills you didn't realise were there.
really daft how you can't insure it. it should just be the same as insuring a normal 306 td

What year is it? mines on a 1997(P) and that's insured via Footman James at £137 a year on a classic policy..
Cant answer the Gearbox question I'm afraid but will have a Nad gearbox for sale within a few weeks if needed.

I once drove a 405 1.6 petrol with an XUD TD box on it (owner done it for extra economy) and it was pretty dire acceleration after 3rd. I can't imagine a 1.9 NAD being man enough to make 5th feasible it's already a pretty long gear in the TD tbh
