    Lot of wiring changes to remove the Multitronic ECU - I am basing this on the Tiptronic which has it's own ECU under the main Engine ECU in the plenum chamber.
    A very big job I think.

    I'm guessing she didn't come with you on the test drive, and wasn't consulted on the decision to buy it.

    Here's an idea. Instead of rushing to sell the car - or worse still, contemplating bizarre notions of converting it to a manual - why not go out together, find some quiet roads where you wife can practice driving the automatic, with you there to guide her and build her confidence?

    Since i became a driving instructor! she refuses to drive with me as passenger! been like it for years, says im a bad passenger?? mmm??lol
    and i sort of consulted her about the purchase as i bought it for her really as she has always loved them! showed her pics ect,but missed out the bit about auto!!!! thought she would be fine, i did run her through it several times but she wouldnt allow me to sit in with her!
    almost 3 crasheds caused in 3 days????? now wont even entertain the idea and telling me to sell and get a manual, end of!!!
    be almost inpossible for me to find one as clean condition, its staggering!
