    actually a few were converted with the b7 rs4 manual box and a custom adapter plate, and they do come up for sale every now and then in the UK, but to be blunt, its not a car for corners.

    its for monstering autobahns

    Yeah I read an article a few years ago about one that was converted.
    You can still change gear on the Autobahn, and we don't have any

    Its crazy the difference in 26 years! I used Dalton.ie Revo Golf R Wagon as a Daily for a few weeks at the start of this lockdown. The last few days though I've been back in my own Mk2. Driving the Mk2 is an event, 60mph, is like 100+ in the Mk7!

    No Traction Control, No A/C, No ABS, No Power Steering, a Cable Clutch, and Rod Change Gearbox really bring back the driver involvement. The only mods to the Mk2 are H&R Clubsport coilovers, set to a sensible height, 256mm front brake upgrade, and Zender Sport wheels.

    I bought the Mk2 back in December asa 30th birthday present to myself. 74k miles, 1 owner car. Its an 8v Digifant model.My only plans are to keep it mechanically right, and possibly a respray over winter. It's been treated to new disc's and pads all around, new tyres, and new coilovers. I have a coolant system refrech on the cards in the coming weeks, with new genuine thermostat, coolant housings, waterpump, fan switch, and possibly radiator. Its also got new rotor arm, distributor cap, plugs and plug leads.

    If they think you're crude, go technical; if they think you're technical, go crude. I'm a very technical boy.
