528iT transmission choices?
 
Hi, I'm in the market for a 528iT and was wondering whether anyone can confirm the Transmissions offered on that model, 1999-2000 in US.

Was the same manual offered in both years? Which package or model year Automatic was Steptronic (manual shifting option)?

Are any of them equipped with a limited slip diff?

thanks.

5 speed manual transmission, both years.
4 speed automatic w/ ATC, both years.
5 speed steptronic was standard on the 540iT, both years.

The only E39 that has LSD is the M5, doesn't matter if it's a 525, 528, 530, 540, stick or auto all non-M E39's has open diffs.

Thanks, but I'm sure the Steptronic was also available on some 2000 528iT's. I just don't know which ones, exactly.

My mistake. Starting with 9/1999 production date the 4 speed automatic was replaced with the 5 speed steptronic automatic.
