Ok well my plans to get a particular VS went into the bin when said VS had an accident involving much front-end damage. So now I'm trying to decide whether to buy a manual VT station wagon or get a VX station wagon and convert it to manual. I'm hoping to find a Series 2 VT to avoid all the typical little series 1 problems that always seem to show up, plus my understanding is that they're a little bit lighter than the series 1. Is the price difference + cost of a manual conversion worth it to get the VX over the VT? I'm guessing it's about $2,000 - $3,500 to convert it depending on where I go, plus I'm guessing there's probably a good $2-$3,000 in price difference for the car itself so I'm more leaning towards the VT.
