Yeah ! some 3 series have instaled transmission made in France by GM Strassburg,France ( nothing to do with an American General Motors) they are called GM5 , same tranny is also instaled on newer Cadilacs CTS and some Land Rovers.Others models like E46 320 i have transmissions made by a German company ZF, both are OK !
