    Anything is possible but the cost involved will be huge. Just sell up and get another one with DSG.

    Definitely not worth the conversion, just buy one already in. The gearbox/mechatronic is the thickend of £6k without the labour and other mechanical woes.

    I know a guy who forked out £10k to convert his Auto MTM Tuned RS6 into a manual. Mental money.

    As said sell up and buy one!

    This is what I'm looking into doing. Mine has quite a few mods on which I will remove sell the car then put them back on a s tronic one!

    I know someone who converted a manual R32 to DSG to handle the power from the turbo he'd also fitted. Cost him a fortune to get done, he would have been better off buying a DSG R32 and swapping engines!
