    Hi guys, we are looking for a car for the Mrs and fancy a cheap B6 as a short term winter car. I've looked at a fair few now, but I'm not sure whether the 163bhp quattro comes with a 5-speed manual, whether the 190 does or whether it's only 150's that do?

    Can anyone shed any light? Lots of Googling hasn't really helped :(

    Just want to verify really, as I don't want to travel 200 miles to see the wrong car :)

    I'd prefer 6-speed but it's not a deal breaker by any means. I just want to avoid the 150bhp model.

    Any tell tale ways of identifying a 150bhp car?

    Early cars will be 150 and the later cars were 163 or 190. I have a 163 quattro with a 5 speed box for the record. I,m sure it would be specified in the ad if it's got a 6 speed as it's seen as a plus point.
