2: It is cheaper to sell it and buy an automatic rather than retrofit - esp at euro labour rates
3: ECU's are different, engine is tuned for different torque characteristics, it will never be a proper integrated package. You will never get a proper resale, in fact people might run away from a "frankenstein". Electrical considerations, different wire harnesses, changing info on the road transport registration system
Need I go on, why bother.................!
