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

    Hmm! I wonder! Bet it's a bit of a job!
    the thing though is it really worth it?

    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!
