said id throw up a thread on this as im new to the forum

heres a few pics of when i got the car back in november 2011

first thing i did was swap the gearboxs over from my ek9 to the eg6, the ek9 had a 98 spec S80 wit 96 spec 4th and 5th, the eg6 gearbox was a 96 spec s80, also got a teg r gear linkage an fitted it too, car feels 100 times nicer wit the new box an linkage, i was already trying to sell the ek9 a few weeks at this stage so i swapped the gearboxes and dropped the price of the ek9, its now sold to a lad in wexford,
