For sale in NL, nothing to do with me. Seller "van Oeteren" = Sweedspeed Racing. https://link.marktplaats.nl/m1598636937




I've sent them a message to find out more about the 5-speed gearbox conversion.

I actually don't mind the chop; usually I hate such modifications with a vengeance but that is mild and makes the V4 just look more like a 2 stroke.

I'm not a fan of it, perhaps because I don't like the shape of the two stroke models (nor do I like their stinky engines!).

Haven't heard back from the seller unfortunately.

I don't hate the roof chop either and usually not a fan.

I am a fan of the gearbox - I have thought about one day trying to fit one of these. It looks more comfortable in there than I imagined it would although I am guessing it protrudes into the cabin - possibly visible in one of the photos?

With its straight cut gears that's not something you want to use on the road I suppose!

Gareth, do you know what type of Audi gearbox is in the grey 96? Nothing else visible than the pic I posted above, the photos aren't great anyway. I have no issues with standard V4 boxes, but I sure do like a technical challenge!

The chop might have ben planned around the use of the earlier shorter/smaller front screen. They aren't common but perhaps a better idea economically than having a custom one made. Whatever the Audi box is I'm sure that the 5th speed would be welcome.

It certainly is, like fine wine and Michelin star dining, something for connoisseurs that's not me I'm afraid Roger.
