tiptronic to manual gearbox conversion?

I'm considering the purchase of a 2000 plate 3.2S with tiptronic because its a very low mileage, one owner from new and i can pick it up for a very good price because i know th owner. Problem is i really wanted a manual so my question is - How much work is required to replace to a 6 speed manual and what would be the parts list?

Thanks in advance and i look forward to contributing on the forum once i get settled in!

I’d suggest you forget about it. While it can be done, the total expense, and the amount of work involved, are considerable, typically well beyond the value of the car. Sell or trade the car for what you wanted in the first place………..
