    ...whole new tranmission, clutch, pedals, crossmembers, etc etc etc.

    I think what you are looking for is an automatic with a manual valve body... I think...

    to answer your question its not like can take an automatic and put a clutch and a shifter on it and its a manual....

    I beleive there are valve bodies that will allow you to force an automatic to stay in a gear and not shift unless you tell it to, but would still be nothing like a true manual...

    There is multiple threads about this conversion.

    If you have a m6 and want to go to an a4 your going to have to get the harness, and a different crossmember plus the tranny plus tune your car.

    Its a lot more complicated to go to a m6 than an a4.


    Explain your situation in full depth.

    Its not that far...Louisiana to Georgia is about a day depending on where in Georgia. Atlanta is the majority of the day.

    Tell me about it...Last time I went threw there a few months ago I got rear ended cause I had to slam on the brakes when some Caddy cut in front of me and slammed on the brakes (they damn near hit the car in front of them). 5 car pile up but lucky for me I was pulling a car hauler and got away scratch free.
