GBears is an unknown quantity at this point
Hey, I was wondering easy it is to change an automatic transmission to a manual, and how much it would cost. Has anyone actually done it? Thanks

Briefly looked at this in my 318i... Estimates placed the cost anywhere from $2000-$3000, ~$1500 at best.
I know that's a big range, but I said I only briefly looked at it.
I was told that such kits exist; but I never found one, and ended up buying a new car. I know this doesn't help much, but suffice it to give you hope that this is a possibility...
Let me know how this goes... I'm looking to turn my car into an SMG...

Crap, I think I may be a yuppie...
