New BMW Owner here!

Hi guys, this is my first time here and it will be my first time owner a BMW too.
Its a 2000 323ci.

Too bad its auto since all my previous cars are manual. I also heard the 3-series auto trannies have issues. Is that true? Is it costly to swap it to a manual (5speed or 6speed)? or drop in those 330ci motor?

I got the 323ci for a good deal, so I cannot complain so much yet. But I need to budget myself for the worst situation to the tranny.

Thanks guy! any inputs about the auto-to-manual swap or the tranny issue would be welcome and appreciated.

I'm excited! The 00+ 3-series has a hot bodyline that will be timeless and last forever!
