Tiptronic in 96' A6 (fwd)

Oh common,
	I somebody out there has got to know this one.  No tech-heads that
know the differences.  How much is a Audi 5-spd Tiptronic?

As good as the new A6 is, what would be the possability of putting in the
Trptronic tranny into to older A6.  My father has one that I would like to
buy in a couple years but it is an Auto.  I could put in a 6-speed unit
but think the Tiptronic would be much easier.  Anyone know what the real
differences are.
	Will the Tiptronic bolt right up, I would imagine so.  So then I
owuld need a new shifter as well.  Is that it or does it require computer
changes as well.
	Also, while I have been told that only the new 5-speed Tiptronic
has the adjusting memory tranny that matches your driving style, my Dad's
A6 seems to do so as well.  It is one of the last ones made I think.  WE
bought it new in October of 97' and I could swear the thing reads my mind
when it shifts.  

	If anyone knows the answer to these questions, please tell.
