    Back in April I posted this thread http://www.audi-sport.net/ubbthreads/showflat.php?Cat=0&Number=378719&an=0&page=4#378719 and now the bad news is that the gear box is kaput. Its actually the 2nd gear thats gone and I've been quoted £600-£1000 depending on how much demage caused for reconditioning the box.
    My question is what do I do?The car has a book price of £2200 and can still fetch up to £3200 private with a working box since its only done 97000 miles and its an Avant although in bright red and on 97 P-reg.This car is our daily runner (school runs/work for the missus and I use it weekends on motorways, so I need to make a decision. Any suggestions?

    have you tried findapart.co.uk?

    I needed a hard to find gearbox for the Mrs' automatic Micra about 1 year ago, tried all over the place - but findapart found one in minutes, it arrived on a pallet a few days later, paid £325 inc 3mth warranty (Nissan wanted £1800).. saves all that phoning round!

    no cost, worth a try!
