I was wondering how much it would cost to get a '02 330i automatic transmission to a manual transmission and where i would go to get this done.

I'd love to know the same thing. I have an 02 325xi and it's got just about everything I could hope for - but it's an auto and not a manual. From what I've read - it's just better to trade the thing in and get another one in a stick... but from what I could figure out - parts and labor would probably cost you around $6000-9000, at least. And the BMW dealer I talked to say they'd rather just trade you cars than convert it as it reduces the value of the car.

Hope that helps - but hey - if anyone else knows - shout out!

It's completley possible.

Do the work yourself. And while your in there, do an M3 engine swap, its gonna cost you close to that anyway.

Anyone know how I can convert my 3 series into a 7 series?



I can understand the desire for a stick, but it sounds like an insane amount of work.
