I know a lot of places for american cars sell replacement torque convertor plates (turbine plates?) that make the tranny feel much more stiff and add power up top. Basically its like having a slipping clutch and replacing it with a new one. But thats american car companies that like automatic transmissions in the first place.

You can look for used units of the ZF 5speed auto gearboxes if you want more gears that is..

I still recommend u to a manual tranny swap..that's way much better..

Might as well buy a new car. Tranny swap is a bitch. Expensive as hell, and even done right destroys the resale of the car. PS. Three gears? don't the e36 has 4 sp auto. I know mine does.

the BMW auto in the e36 is a 4spd.

D is considered 4th gear in M mode.

I agree. If you can't shift in 4th you have heave of trouble on your hand.
