Re: The Great MoT Confusion

Hi everyone,Rob Gill here.
Had mine MOT,d the weekend it passed no problems.
Personally i think it makes good sense to have a critical eye look over your car at least every 12 months.
Lets be honest they are masterpieces so why not? :bigrin: :bigrin:

s3 auto to manual conversion.

Has anyone done this conversion?
I have an option on a standard gearbox or an overdrive box which appears to be dimensionally identical ,any thoughts or ideas,or spares ie. bellhousing,flywheel ,clutch pedal?
Thanks Rob Gill

Hi,Rob Gill here,
this not unusual on a s3, i had it on mine.
I cured it by fitting a new SNG Barrett ignition/disributor kit,it came with very clear fitting instructions.
