View Full Version : Buying a friend's car.

I might be buying my first car off of my buddy!

I'm not that much of a "car guy" but I've always wanted to learn. Part of that learning process is asking questions, so here it goes!

He has a 1991 Volkswagen Jetta. It's already lowered and it looks fantastic.

The part I'm not to sure about is when he said, "(It's a) 5 speed that I swapped for a newer one approx. 100,xxx miles from a 2002 jetta."

What has he swapped out exactly?

The gear box? Clutch? Transmission maybe?

Anyway, thanks for your time guys.
