Lets suppose one day we find a vendor/supplier that is interested in doing manual tranny conversions for the D2 A8/S8. It seems we should have some idea of how big the market is and how much we're willing to pay, so we can leverage our buying power.
And if an auto tranny rebuild is $2.5k, how much would we pay for a MT conversion? $5k? $10k? More?

MotoDyne sell his non-existing "Players Run" 6speed for $12,495.00 :) But seriously, I'm sure it can be marketed for less. I'd paid in the $5,000 to $8,000 no problem!

on a parts kit (assuming I did the labor myself)than throw 3K at another slushbox. But I doubt that there're that many A8 owners who'd really want a 2-legger. So could someone make $$ putting together a conversion package? Doubtful.

Probably $2000 less for the post facelift A8/S8.

Why not purchase a German Spec S8 from Ebay.de?
It seems like buying one with the manual already in it is the only rational way to go. I cannot believe it would be that hard to import a European car and drive the wheels off of it.
Anybody know why this would not be possible?
