Some examples of conversions include:

While there is likely to be some expense involved in changing from manual to automatic transmission the benefits will continue to reward you for a long time to come after the conversion has taken place – particularly the simplicity it offers drivers when they’re behind the wheel, and the smoother performance it delivers in certain driving conditions.

Key components and parts you might need for the conversion include:

  • Valve body
  • Transmission controller
  • Torque converter lock-up
  • Interior accessories such as a bespoke centre console, twin cup holders, smart phone pocket and more.

The parts required to change from manual to automatic will vary on a case by case basis depending on the make and model and the particular requirements of the driver. Whether you’re looking for a standard conversion or you need the expertise of a custom changeover from manual to auto transmission, you can count on Wholesale Automatics to deliver results that will leave you 100% satisfied.

How much does it cost to convert a manual to automatic?

The cost to convert a manual to automatic really depends on the specific conversion. A standard conversion will be cheaper than a highly customised conversion. Similarly a DIY conversion with key components being provided will be cheaper than a professional full conversion.

Should I convert my manual to an automatic or buy brand new?

The cost of converting a manual to an automatic is often less than buying a brand new car. If you love your car then you can keep your car while upgrading to the convenience of an automatic.
