6 speed gearbox
#1
On the motorway, my 2014 B9 Multispace XTR always seems to crave a 6th gear. Has anyone carried out a 6 forward speed gearbox change and been successful with it....?

It's the sort of thing that is probably not feasible financially, there's a lot fo stuff to change or modify.

Definitely,
Gearbox
Driveshafts
Engine\box mounts

Probably,
Flywheel,
Clutch
Starter
Clutch hydraulics

Maybe,
Adaption\machining of input shaft\crankshaft. Depends if the input shaft\crank arrangement is the same.
Gear selector
Gear sensor\coding

By the time you've done all that (and it's a PITA to take the gearbox out on these), you've probably spent more than just buying one with the 6th gear already there.

As well as all of the above, do you know, for a fact, that sixth gear on the six speed box is actually a higher gear than fifth gear on the five speed box?
