Hi all. I'm after converting my s8 to 6 speed manual or DSG type box. Can anyone point me in the right direction. I'd sooner invest money in this car rather than change it for something newer and characterless. Are there any specialists out there that will take job on??

Have you looked on the A8 forum? This has been discussed several times, though only for a manual box not DSG.
The biggest problem, assuming your car is RHD, is the clutch. There was never a manual pedal box for RHD cars, only LHD, and creating one has a whole raft of problems that no-one has yet solved.
For starters the transmission isn't symmetrical and there isn't really space for a clutch, certainly not if you want a footrest as well.

DSG would get my vote every time. No TC, just two clutches and a mechanised manual, with uber fast changes.
