i believe this one shop with A3-S3 did it.
i cant remember name
they had a white a3
then they found a quattro rear end with manual transmission
they swapped it in

prolly will cost you no less than 10k to do it.

oh and they did it on a 2.0t

not sure how its done on a 3.2 2008
Someone over in the R32 forums did it to his R32.

Good luck with that.



You're talking about the Unitronic A3. It IS NOT a manual tranny conversion. It was purchased like that. As far as the quattro conversion goes, I'm not sure if it's been done yet. That was their plan as of March 2012, along with a 500hp turbo. :thumbup:
However, if you buy direct from the manufacturer, it isn't that bad of a process. Just extra coin. My friend's dad did it two years ago, with an S5

Hi Did you ever do the swap? I am at the crossroad either fix the DSG clutch or do the swap... Cheers!
I did the swap.... I believe I am the only one in North America that swapped a manual into a DSG quattro car instead of converting a FWD to quattro. It's actually fairly straightforward, although there are a few things that I never made fully functional like factory. Let me know if you have questions. You can also look at my build thread, it covers pretty much everything I did.
