I love the bodystyle and everything about my g5 except that its a manual. what do you think about a conversion from automatic to manual? maybe how much it would cost to do it or maybe some pro's and con's?

This again...

First off, do you have an auto or a manual? You OP makes little to no sense because of that.

Second, either conversion would be extremely costly, as in thousands of dollars. If you REALLY want the other transmission, sell your car and buy one with the other transmission. Like most things car related, anything is possible if you throw enough money at it.

In short, no. Don't do it, and don't even think about doing it.

We have some, yes, but as evidenced here, we also have many members who aren't afraid to ask about major mechanical procedures which they may not quite understand the cost of. I'm not sure that's a bad thing really...

Thank you for clearing that up. The fact still remains though that it will take a large sum of money to do what you want to do.

And can you imagine the cost of all those components, the cost of installing them and the cost of tuning/troubleshooting the whole setup? Like I said, it will not be worth it. But hey, if you want to dump money into it, go for it.
