the 5 speed is just a W58 with electronic speed sensor instead of hte cable (Ie won't work unless you convert the speedo innards in the transmission and the wrong shifter location (it'll come up about under the handbrake)

+1 sell it and get a MK3 transmission.

odd...what engine in a mk4 in AU (or anywhere) came with an R154 over there? all we got and all I'm aware of globally was the NA/W58, turbo/V160 which is a 6 speed.
