  • Certain things like Automatic gears, ABS, Airbags etc are not done in off market. It need to got to the company to change the entire assembly. I do not think in India it is possible with any manufacturer. Its not cost effective to the buyer and the manufacturer, though it is feasible.

  • Expert Hi,
    Its possible to convert to AT version.It will involve huge investment around 1 lac or so and not worthy of trying as manual gear itself is good engough for long term usage.

  • its very unfortunate that India is 100 Years behind compared to developed countries. I am sure you have watched this on youtube of Manual to auto conversion. Its not yet possible in India even if someone says yes, its possible then you need to be careful and think 100 times before getting it converted. Have to live with it. Sell your car and but a car which has AMT in it or if you want to go for dual clutch then buy VW car or any high end car.
