would i be able to pick up a manual transmission relatively cheap at a junk yard or something and throw it in my 93 325is and take that auto out? if i went through with this would i have to replace the ECU or anything else? thanks for your help.

I don't know about BMW, but I have a buddy who swapped trannies in a Supra. Believe it not, comming from him, you might be better off sticking with the auto. Swapping trannies can get costly and really need to be babied after the fact. You would also have to change the ECU as well due to the fact that it is going to react differently.

cost me about a total of 1400 including a racing short shifter.. me and a good friend of mine put it in otherwise, would have been like 3000. I forgot to take pics... I'll do it soon.
