SE5 Auto / Manual Conversion

Buy a Manual car rather than going to the trouble changing everything. The next owner after you may prefer an auto and just change it all back again. That is the sensible option for sure But you know how it is with cars and the emotional attachment you make with them. Hopefully the next owner will ...

SE5 Auto / Manual Conversion

Cheers, I have never driven a manual Scimitar, is it a better or more involved driving experience as I would think that it should be.
I was thinking along the lines of maybe a more modern box i.e the RX8

SE5 Auto / Manual Conversion

I have a 73 SE5a auto, however I quite fancy a manual box for it.
What is involved in converting to manual and is it a worthwhile task?

Could well be the case but the seller should still be up front about the history of the car

MRV 899R Word to the Wise

MRV899R was a decent SE6 but I’m not sure what the issue was that made it Cat C. I bought it without seeing the V5 and when I realised it have been a total loss, decided I would move it on as I really wanted a SE5 anyway.

MRV 899R Word to the Wise

Hi All

Just a word of warning a light green Se6 VRM MRV 899R keeps popping up for sale, in the South of England area.
The car is decent but it was a Cat C at some point in its life.
The seller is less than forthcoming with the info on it being Cat 6.
