Because the cost wouldn't be worth it. Will cost a few grand to get it converted, plus tuned.

Maybe not, but then again, how much are you going to loose turning the car over for something that's manual? Add that into the equation and it might actually be worth it.

Cheers

Yeah true. I'll look into it more. Maybe converting will be cheaper in the long run. I'm going to be doing the BA up quite a bit, so once converted I will probably keep it.

How are you with a spanner too? Would you be up for a conversion or will labour costs have to come into the price as well?
I'm not saying its a bad thing to not know how, and by having a go is a great way to learn. But if your unsure and get stuck, then there will be an extra cost to having it completed.


I'm not the best to be honest. I've lived a pretty sheltered life before I started working lol was more into sports and music than cars. But like you said, great way to learn. I have a mad that would probably do it if I supplied enough piss for him to sink ;)

Are u planning on getting a better car once your off your p's? if so i think the best way for u to go is either putting up with ur xt for a couple more years then getting as much as u can for a trade in or... sell it private for the best u can (the price the other guys have been saying) and get yourself a manual e series and do a few mods with the money u make and then when the time comes trade that in.

If you do decide to go down the manual conversion, shoot me a PM. I should be able to provide some valuable assistance on it.

You will always get a better price if you sell privately not as a trade in as they too have to resell for a profit.

Keeping the XT for the time being. Will do a manual conversion, once I have the cash. Buying a little 4cyl s**t sometime this week to putt around the city in so I can save more on fuel (being $1.50p/l at the moment.... :( )
