Re: Auto to Manual

More hassle than it's really worth.

You will need the transmission and the clutch on the S197 is hydrolic (sp?). New ECU (or if you can get it retuned, not sure how possible that is). Then you have the clutch, clutch plate and all that. Some underbody work might also be needed, that is the transmission tunnel and the cross member that hold the transmission in place. Probably the major costs, but all the little things add up real quick as well.

Re: Auto to Manual

its very simple, sell your car and buy a manual lol we all have asked our selves how hard it is to swap when we have owned an auto... the best solution is to sell the car and buy another one how you want it.

Ha I figured you'd say that once you heard "the only option is to sell your current car". The amount of money and time you have in that car...you'll never get rid of it!
