Here goes, got a 97`r wagon green. Also got a V50T5 but need to cash in. Got a 97`Black 850 R manual wagon for sale close by. If I can trade in my v50 T5 for this gem it would be an upgrade - to me - my wife not so much. Ahh sc... her, we need dough over prestige. Albeit prstige, this is a seemingly untouched car still sporting the original exchaust etc..

Have checked out vin number but there seems a descrepancy regarding manual transmission, any bright heads out today that can treat me to the knowledge of diversing a M56 from a M59?

Sure thing: 96 and 97 850R manual had the M59. Unless someone swapped in another gearbox and axle it's got the M59.

You can also tell by looking under the car. If there is a small viscous coupling on the passenger side leading toward the gearbox then it's the M59.
