A 6-speed manual transmission, standard from 1989 to 1996.
There are two distinct versions, the original “Black Tag,” 1989-E1993, and the “Blue Tag,” L1993-1996.
The difference? The Black Tag was made in West Germany; the Blue Tag in the USA. The Black Tag is considered stronger due to the use of straight cut gears. However, the later manuals are still rather strong.
Also referred to as an M6 for “Manual 6 speed” or MN6, which was one of its RPO codes.
