Thanks for the information. Yes, I have considered the final drive ratio. But I already have a Manual Transmission 124 car. What I really want is a manual transmission 210 car. I found them to be quite plentiful when in Germany last week.
My original post was questioning shipping one of the cars that I left drool on in Germany, to the US. Then the suggestions started coming in about changing a US car to a stick. This is probably more practical from what I've seen.
Thanks for the info and keep it coming,
