E36 325i Gearbox help! What is compatible..

HI..

My 325i has just lost 2nd gear and the thrust/throwout bearing in the same week. Am looking for a replacement gearbox, but i tseems hard to come by a 325i gearbox.

My question is which ones are compatible from other cars?
There are a few 318i gearboxes on ebay.. would they fit?

Mine is a 'GETRAG' (not ZF) Box, and it has the numbers 220.0.022.0225.96 / 012 225. Not sure if that is the model number.



Many thanks
steve )

tomctx is an unknown quantity at this point
According to the Bentley, 318 build dates after 9/92 used the same transmission as the 325. If you can verify manufacture dates, there should be no problem. the earlier 318 trannies will also fit, but not as strong.

1995 325I, window tint, K&N, debaffled airbox, BMW #104 wheels, Nighthawk low beams, smoked side markers, smoked corners, smoked taillights, M3 stlye heated mirrors, various interior bits, Bosal cat-back.
