S6 Auto to Manaul Trans
« on: December 27, 2004, 10:30:49 pm »
Just wondering, how hard/expensive is it to change one of the old 5cyl 20v S6's from an auto box to a manual box?

Cheers
Tom

What are the auto ones like, they would be ok wouldnt they?  Also, how reliable are the 5 cyl 20 valve engines, and everything else one the car?  It has done 214000kms

Best to look out for a manual...the auto would disappoint.

Its just i have found one at a repo place that is fairly cheap, its a 1994 silver avant, and has 19 inch BBS CH wheels, this is probably the only one i would be able to afford, as it will be cheaper than a usual private or dealer sale

I guess if it is cheap enough then an auto S6 is better than no S6 and it is an avant which is a plus in my book.  Know the history of it and get it checked thoroughly cos you can very quickly lose the benefit of buying it at a good price.

What's the going rate for an S4, the last one I knew of was on the market for $19K, had done close on 200,0km with a comprehensive CCS history?

I meet the owner of this car a few weeks ago at Taupo race track, he races classic cars. The story behind it goes something like this: He paid I think $11,500 for it of a mate of his that worked at Team European, its got e cheap Repco pod filter and I think he had done something else to it. I did post up a pic in the last forum, I see if I still have it.

And here we go!

Have seen this car in Penrose several times, and towing a BMW race car. Looks real sweet. I agree a manual would be preferable but have never seen on for sale, they all seem to be autos?

Stick to what you want - 3dr vr6 or sim.  Autos are puss. Do you want to drive it - or be driven ?
Look at the cockup called the RS6 & RS6+. Unavailble in good old manual. >:(

It's not a bad 'cockup' ... you have to drive one to appreciate that a manual may not be the best option for this particular car.
