I'm seriously thinking about doing a manual tranny swap. Any ideas on how much a tranny would cost for my 95 325i? Could I use a m3 6 speed tranny? What else would I need besides just the tranny? Thanks!

check around on ebay, a 6-speed would be hard to find, but would work i would think, I'm going to be selling mine soon with like 7,000 miles on it, its brand new pretty much new clutch too,

yeah zion is the only place for the 6 speed.. look to spend in the areas of 1000-1500 for a 5spd swap. call John's LKQ Salvage yard and ask for Brian. 18003861399. He hooked me up with everything that I needed. Only charged me 150 for shipping total 2 day. the hardest part in doing the swap is adding the extra pedal...

I don't know... I suppose alot more because they're in oregon and only had to ship to spokane which was about 700 miles away... call them tomorrow sometime and see what it'll cost... I know my m3 tranny cost me 750 and it only had 28k miles on it.

Well, how much would a normal trasnmission be? Also, how much more am I looking at spending other than the transmission itself if I did all the work? Is it worth it? Has anyone done this?

if you do all of the work yourself which is a capable job, you're looking at 1000-1500 depending on what kind of parts you use. I used a UUC flywheel and some other peformance parts so mine totaled out at about 1500 with the flywheel and UUC SSK. then came labor which I wish I didn't pay for and just did it myself. a normal good used or rebuilt auto tranny alone will cost 1200-2000 or more. For just the manual tranny usually around 500-1000. they're not as complex as autos and thus are cheaper.

The tranny swap doesn't sound that complicated to do by yourself - if you've never done major work on your car then probably best to have someone has help out.
