I remember that I had seen some E24's converted from Auto to 5 Speed. I remember that it is possible, but the procedure was not as simple as just changing out the tranny. You need to add a clutch pedal, have to add a manual transmission linkage, actually mount the transmission........ Unless you are very techinally savy, I wouldn't even try, though I have never owned an auto and never will. I will make another post if I find an article, it might be slightly different on your car, but you can sort of see what it entails.

If you show your BMW love, she will love you in return.
