    Why on earth would you ever want to swap from 02j to 02m?

    Just fit a facelift 02j gear linkage and all your woes will be gone.

    Oddly, I'd have to agree with Jardo. I'm buying a decent clutch and flywheel at the moment and already got a wavetrac diff, both parts are way more expensive for an 02M compared to the others. Not worth it to say you have a six speed.

    The over all final ratios are as good as the same, but having the wider spread in the 5 speed lends itself to the torque of our cars.

    An 02M will basically make your car slower and cost more.

    Why do you want an extra gear?

    Okay sweet , just a cruising gear at like 80 for better ratio

    also I brought my Audi with clutch gone so I repaired the clutch (standard one) and the left front wheel had negative camber so I changed the front bed out of my 2001 Audi and replaced steering rack as my track rod end was bent and fitted coil overs (eBay ones) and it has improved the camber alot but there is still a tiny bit there any ideas what it could be . Has anyone heard of the hubs bending ?
