I have an automation RS200 currently and am feeling like a bit of a change switching to a manual. I've looked into a straight conversion and the general consensus seems to be don't bother because of the difference in MT and AT engines and instead buy an already manual tezza.
However I really don't want to sell mine simply because its in immaculate condition, only done 102Km, leather seats, neo v2 bumper and fog lights/HID headlights, full revamp of sound system and sound dampening of doors/tray etc, genuine trd exhaust, new full set of tyres and nice looking rims plus i bought it at a fairly reasonable price.
So going from there i'm wondering what are peoples opinions on swapping the engine to manual and getting hold of the manual transmission and possibly installing a light weight fly wheel at the same time.
