i have a 98 528iA sport and i'm getting tired of the automatic transmission. I been thinking about researching about a swap to a 5-speed. I never heard this done before. i understand that in need a tranny, shaft and the clucth pedal, but do i need to change the ecu and remove the automatic trans ecu? Is it possible to change transmission? please help with info... thanx
