I remember watching the show that did the R8 in the video (WCC doing Noel Lee "Monster Cable" car), and how stressed they were during the application. Was wild to watch, and the result spoke for its self. NOTE, NOT a fan of the show.

I have never used it, but it sounds interesting.

I used these guys.  Expensive but not as expensive as your quote.

To be clear Michael, the VIN will not show you if the car was a five speed.  The data card corresponding to the VIN will show you as indicated by Don and Hans.

The bolts, nuts and rings of the front suspension have been yellow passivated, what a difference!
I just started with rebuilding of the front suspension.

The "VIN" only tells you if it was an automatic or a manual. I don't know if there is a difference in the "manual" codes..
For example:
113 044 is 280SL ...   the following "02" is "automatic".  I assume the "01" would be manual

Quote from: m300cab
does the vin show if a car was originally a 5 speed?.../...
Yes, the card certainly does, just like Don stated.  "230" and "232" were printed in the box "Wenig gewuenscht" to the right.

I believe code "230" on the 2nd line of the card designates the factory 5-speed.
