While I've seen plenty of write ups on people doing 01E swaps into the S8, I'm yet to really read any driving impressions. Has anyone here owned or driven a manual transmission S8, and if so, can you provide feedback on how adding the magical third pedal changes the experience? I sold my previous 2002 S8 because of the automatic and have regretted it ever since, and recently atoned for that sin by purchasing a 2001 with 80k. Because I would like to make this car a keeper, I'm very seriously looking into making the swap in the semi-near future. Any feedback would be appreciated!
