    A box wont run you more than 100 plus a new clutch. Not worth writing the car off for that little money especially as you have spent so much already.

    Whats up with the 'box? As they honestly don't give up that often. There are cars running 500bhp on std boxes

    the symptoms he gave when he mentioned the clutch failing sounded to me like the gearbox, but the fact your getting a speedo output would imply that the gears themselves are fine and its likely the diff thats fubar

    As people have said though, a gearbox costs buttons, and changing the box is no more difficult than changing the clutch!

    You could quite easily go buy another car for a whole pile of stuff to break on that too!

    These things happen. I ended up changing two calipers, a set of disks and pads on the rear of mine not long after i got it becuase of a siezed handbrake actuator on one side and a bent slider on the other (ie nothing wrong with the second caliper)

    i know how ya feel mate.. my engine has a horrid noise sounds like a derv motor. (i think my bottom ends on way out)

    thinking do i get it fixed or get a new engine fitted. (prob the best idea tbh)

    dont give up on it mate, the ammount of money these bloody cars cost you will be throwing away a load of money. As said, your next car could be as much as a Arse as the a4.

    my turbo is still not doin as its ment to im gettin the hump with it every time i drive it, but... is it worth selling it to have the same dramas else where??

    f*kin cars... i hate to love em!

    Now to many mods to list! Lots of power, torque and Leather!

    the bolt pattern is different, but some of the boxes have both bolt patterns, people use the 2.5 TDI 6 speed box on 1.8T's for example

    ALL A4 manual tranny's have the SAME bellhousing bolt pattern - I4, V6 and V8.

    The modular bellhousing first appeared in the B4 Audi 80/90/Coupe range, with the 01A/012 tranny.

    The B5 cars carried on, with the 012 range, B6/B7 with the 012/01X range.

    ALL direct fit.

    My gear box is yours for 100. Just to give you an idea, you can have the clutch as well as it's relatively new.

    hmm fair enough that they're all the same.

    I was sure you told me that the I4 was different to the I5/V6/V8 in some other thread but never mind

    Yes, the I4 is different in that it fits the inner set of bellhousing bolt holes.

    The I5/V6/V8 fit the outer set of bellhousing bolt holes.

    They're the same in that they can all be bolted to the same tranny.

    Think of the tranny as an aftermarket RS4 replica wheel with 2 sets of PCD bolt holes - 5x100 and 5x112.
