well, not really. Expect to pay around $2500 for that. Factor in $750-$1000 plus around $1200 in labor and $300-$500 for the clutch and throwout bearing and new flywheel and all that.

edit, I just remembered you need new pedals, that's another $500 in labor.

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

You can use the 6 speed from the Z4, but they're pricey. You can also get the euro 6spd from the E36 M3 Euro, but also pricey.
