How to advertise a car with a non standard 6 speed box?

I have a Fiat Punto 1.2 8v Active with air condition, I wish to sell the car as I no longer require a second car. It has a 6 speed box, fitted by a previous owner. I did not know this when I brought the car, as it has a standard 5 speed gear lever Knob. It has good MPG, [50+ on a run] and at 70mph is revving at 3000 rpm.

I realise I must state the fact that the car has been modified, but should I highlight it as an extra selling point?

That's interesting. A FIAT 500 1.2 8v 5-speed is geared at about the same. 70mph is 3,000rpm and it does 50mpg. But if you definitely have 6 speeds then yes you should advertise it.

Better than the original Punto in almost every way. Excellent driving environment. Easy to get in and out of. Practical and inexpensive to run.
