    I was expecting it to be the 'Export' model like most of the auto 1.9 GTi's in New Zealand, 14" wheels, cloth seats etc.

    Assuming the fundamentals are the same, converting these to manual is a pain in the arse. You need to change the whole front-subframe over, not as easy as just a new gearbox.

    Given the half-leathers, wheels etc I guess this has the full-compression motor?

    Default 309 auto to manual conversion

    I have a 309 gti auto (Jap import). I was planning at some stage to convert it to manual. Would it also be as difficult as the 205 equivalent conversion appears to be?

    I think it would probably involve the same work as converting a 205 auto given they are so similar, and that's the impression I got from some English guys.

    But that's more of an estimation really, you'd probably want to check with someone in the know.

    Cheers. Its more of a long term project really. Current issue is a blown head gasket on the 309 and the decision as to whether to fix up the current engine or search for a replacement engine or put an mi16 engine in (of a wreck of course, Orestes). If I go with the mi16 engine option then the conversion to manual will make sense.

    The 309 GTi16 route would be pretty sweet. I don't think converting the auto to manual is THAT difficult. It's just not as simple as changing the gearbox. I had considered buying a cheap 205 GTi auto but once I found out you had to change the front-subframe over it became economically unfeasible to me.

    Would you do the headgasket yourself or get a mechanic to do it? I've seen 309/205 GTi motors go pretty cheap. Then there's always the 405 SRi motor which is essentially the same motor physically, except the head is different in that it's torquier down low but less powerful up top.

    I assume you're talking about Adelaide City Dismantlers in Gepps Cross (about 2 minutes walk from my place). I have NEVER found a place that charges so much money for parts, it's ridiculous.

    they were only ever sold in japan, and i beleive they were a stuff up on behalf of Peugeot if i'm correct. I would actually think of buying it if it doesn't go up any higher. Certainly would make a good companion to my currennt 205

    One thing I don't get is the "sliping 4th gear" I don't understand what that could mean given the nature of the gearbox

    There's one in a recent Practical Classics with 70K miles on the speedo, with aircon and sunroof. It looks totally schmick, too. Did Japan have miles? I thought they would have had km.

    from what i understood of the mater they were shiped over from the UK, hence the stuff up and auto boxes. They were a very limited production run
