Might be a load of pit lane b•ll•cks but I've heard various people mention a conversion to change a smg m3 back to manual for something like £700.
Anyone actually had any experience of this?I've been looking at getting back into csl ownership & although I absolutely love the cars I know if I bought another I'd be sick of the smg within a few months again.
Cheers

Just actually registered at that site tonight,for some reason I didn't bother when I had a csl?!
It's really not the type of thing I do-altering cars from standard that much but if it was reasonable in price & it could be reversed I would seriously consider buying again

I know that Black Falcon in Germany changed an SMG CS to a manual, saves about 15kg.

taking a stab at reviving a very old thread - has anybody done a manual conversion on a CSL and knows the approximate cost?

Darragh at EverythingM3s has converted several CSLs now. All done “factory-like”

It can of course be done cheaper with a self-centering shifter like a CAE, but a CSL deserves better.
