dude, i cannot nderstand why on earth you want to convert this awesme manual machine to an auto? and it not just the gearbox. you need the ecu as well. i doubt you would find all the parts you need. better live with the manual. or you sell that and buy an auto.

why on earth you want to do that dude manual virs are very hard to find and it cost a lot to do a converting as evergreen pointed out the best option is for you is to sale it or exchange it with a auto one.

As you can see, there might be many enthusiasts wanting to buy your manual, so it might be easier just to sell the manual and buy an automatic.

Also converting the car to auto is not as simple as buying an auto gear box. You will also need to find the gearbox ECU, wiring loom, gear level assembly, upholstry and trim that house the auto selector assembly, and possibly a new indicator panel in the dashboard, which indicates the current gear (this of course is optional).

Yep and also Vi-RS has the mulitimatic gear box also the S1,S2 switches located in steering wheel. And as said manual ViRS is the most rare model in EK3 i guess. Even I would consider getting a manual one if possible.

If you really want to go for auto ViRS best option is to sell your car and get well maintained auto ViRS one to two laks below the amount you sell. And it will save you lot of money, time and possible ruined up car if not done properly.

cat is out of the bag!! your car must have been converted from an auto a manual. whoever who did that has left the original steering with the shifter buttons. dude, look at your meter panel carefully, you will most likely see the auto gear position indicator too.

Hello all sorry to sound dumb but what is a multimatic gear box and what is the S1 S2 switch for?
thanks.

S1 & S2 is to toggle between normal drive and sports mode. And multimatic is another name for CVT by honda.

And CLC i suggest you to take it to stafford and stay away from Magcity for mechanical and engine relatad matters.

I guess you need to see if you have proper ViRS gear box, ECU changed or remapped correctly to manual gear box, etc. (assuming you have original auto converted to manual)

Can any honda expert comment that do we really have original ViRS with manual transmission? I've never come across any manual, but only heard those are rare to find?
