Query about "detent pin" in the SX4 gearbox
I'm a noob when it comes to technical stuff, so bear with me here -
My question(s) are related to the new "detent pin" technology used in the new SX4 diesel (see http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ml#post2253552 (SX4 Diesel - Is it on the cards? Update: Now launched)) -
1. Do the petrol and diesel SX4 variants have totally different gearboxes ?
2. If no, then why is the detent pin (which supposedly makes gear shifts butter smooth) not put in the SX4 petrol's gearbox too? Why would Maruti make 2 different gearboxes with different configurations? Is the technology expensive to produce?
3. If the technology cost is not much, can I expect a March 2011 production SX4 car to have the new, improved gearbox?
FYI, I will be getting delivery of a new SX4 ZXi tomorrow, March 4th, so am curious.
P.S: I had posted this question in the First Drives and Initial Ownerships sub-forum but I think this is a better place to ask.

re: Query about "detent pin" in the SX4 gearbox
Didn't older generation gear boxes come with a detent spring mechanism? Is this different from it?
