I'm no expert but it would seem most of the BMW 5-spd manuals would fit. Any similar year E46/E39 trans (getrag) should bolt right up! dont quote me though... That sounds pretty terrible to replace the trans because of a noise.. how bout having it looked at by a trans shop? or at least rebuild it.. thats a weird problem. Transmission bearings?? doesnt sound common at all..
