I'd prefer a local sale (Chicago-area), so this is why I'm posting a feeler.
It seems autos are the easiest trans to come by since everyone does manual swaps, so I'd probably stuck to another auto for my 1.8t.
I really would prefer a unit under 100k mi, the Tip units all get problems as they get older and the high-mileage ones that are "trouble-free" are time bombs.
Not interested in spending a buttload of cash, either. I'd sooner junk the car or sell the engine instead of get hosed on a used trans.
