of this?


Also, how expensive is it to drop in a manual transmission?

I'd buy the car cause it's "Very Depandable!"

3.7k is hardly expensive!

I think he was asking how expensive it is to put a manual transmission in.

Have you seen it in person or just looked at the pics. To bad he has not interior & under the hood pics. Would help make your decision a little easier. Changing to manual would set you back a bit.

You Shouldn't miss out on a car that's so "Depandable", and the only repairs are front "Struds". Who could turn it down? It's just like a "Classic"

Doesn't take much computer know-how to be a handy mechanic.

I wouldn't buy it until I went and looked at it myself, obviously.

It's not exactly a close drive, and considering I don't have my own car anymore, I don't exactly have the ability to drive around on my own :)

just curious if it's worth the drive out to look :)

The swap is well documentd, just seach manual swap. Figure around a thousand for used parts plus ~10 hrs. of your or someone else's labor.

I'm pretty sure you could find a 5spd 535i for that kinda money or an auto 540i, but not too sure.
