Patience my dear fellow.

We'll need to know what year BMW the donor tranny is coming from... very important

NOW, this is your tanny - http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...16&hg=23&fg=05

THis is a 91
http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...16&hg=23&fg=05

They all look the same and they all carry the same serial number. AND... upon closer inspection of the page you'll notice the wording "UP To 12/92"

So, upon inspection of these results from http://www.realoem.com I would state that any transmission that comes from an earlier vehicle than yours must be from an e36 build date 10/90 up to 12/92.

Hope this helps and good luck with the tranny, sorry to hear that it broke.

^^ LOL... no I didn't know... but... I'm kind of worried that you know but, to each his, I mean, her, I mean... whatever own.

E36 325i -> you're welcome and just a correction to my statement above, a 12/92 build date means you can also get a newer tranny from a 93 325i as well.

Don't forget you'll probably want to put in a new clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing while the old transmission is being removed and replaced... you may as well since everything will be apart.
