Transmission failure help.

I am trying to put a used AT tranny in a 92 525i touring wagon that is the for the same year make and model. I want to know if I can just slap it in or if ther will be problems, mainly with the TCM. How hard of a job is it, is there any special tools. Please help.

I dunno brother. Anything more than sensors and brake pads I am scared straight to mess with. I would find a reputable import wrench and have them give you an estimate. At the very least they can guide you on some things you may run into that will help. Good luck....
