Hello,
I believe I'm in the right generation.
I have a 2012 Passat S with the regular 2.5l engine.

I am working on my parts list for my potential transmission swap.
I have a few reasons why I would rather swap than buy a manual.

1. The manual transmission Passat is hard to find around here.

2. I hate driving automatics

3. There's one manual Passat near me, it's listed at $10,000, TDI and has 20k miles. I can't afford that, but I have the time and money to straight swap.

4. I really like the car, just not the transmission.

I have most of the parts list together, just want to see if I'm missing anything.

I know I need the following:
Transmission
Bellhousing
Shift fork
Shifter
Clutch
Slave cylinder
Master cylinder
Pedal assembly
Line
Flywheel
Transmission sensors

What I'm not sure about, but probably need:
Transmission mount
Axles
Ecu programming

the hardest part in my eyes is sourcing the correct transmission. I've never pulled an automatic transmission, but I have done clutches on Honda's.

If there's anything I'm missing, please let me know.

Thank you for reading and all advice is appreciated.
