My firend found an automatic 325is but he wants it in manual. is there any way to change it? im not to sure but i hear its possible. how much would it cost? and is it possible for ANY car? thanks!
Possible but pricey depending on the price of the car you may be better off buying a stick. Can be done for any car that is made with a manual transmission.

Alright, the stuff you need you can order from Zionsville Autosport(google it, then call there number) cost about $1500, comes w/ EVERYTHING you need, then find a mechanic that will do it, and it should only be about $1000 labor...

Formally known as Asio.
my dad bought a 540i auto and wanted a conversion, he was quoted 5800, but thats a 540/m5 6-speed tranny which i have driven before (in anothr car) and OMG no wonder 540 6-speed costs more.
anyways its depends, the cost of the tranny may cost 1-2k and then modding the interior a bit . . . to fit the gear shift w/o makin look ugly wil cost a bit; plus install. how old is the car . . . it may be better to sell and rebuy a 5speed.
YES ANY CAR !!! just the price matters. ive heard of a 740i conversion even.
hmmm... i guess my buddy got taken to the cleaners, eh? I don't think ill be telling him that. I guess this is what you get for going to a mitsubishi dealer in Greenwich, CT to have your tranny swapped.
