    Not sure but will ask the garage tomorrow as I have just had my S3 gearbox replaced, due to no 1st and 2nd gear.

    dose that mean you 5speed lot can hit 60 in 2nd then, or have they lost the top end?

    why do you want to change the drive shafts tho?
    they should just bolt up from 5sp car onto 6spd box,

    S3 shafts are going to be longer I think as their wishbones are wider slightly.
