I've got one on my 3.0 TD, it's good in my opinion, there is a change in performance, nothing I would go geeee whizzer about. I find the low down power a bit more stable, as well as good as you could get for a four cylinder, this is where I really miss the old 4.2. The overtaking performance is better with the trailer on, economy dropped off a tad which is what I expected because performance always comes at a cost. I disconnected it once to see if I could notice the difference going backwards, yes I did more so than going the other way. Cost me about a grand I think, I bought the dtronic about eighteen months ago.
Justifying the cost for these types things is always difficult, I noticed the difference, and I feel safer overtaking, the vehicle is more responsive, for that I don't regret buying it. The web site is worth a visit, gives you more info. My opinions as usual, your choice, your cash.

In my opinion, the Safari Dtronic is probably the most useful accessory you could put on your new vehicle for two reasons. Firstly it is something you will use every time you drive the car and secondly because it will improve your cars performance more than any other single modification. If your car is manual, you will also benefit from longer clutch life, due to the torque improvement. Your power will go from 118 to 133Kw and torque from 380 to 420Nm and that is a noticeable difference.
They retail for $1495, but you can pick them up for less. I paid $1308 for mine.
