^ Coming from the 3er side of things where we consider engine swaps common things to do when bored, I say yes, you can put any engine in any ting if you want to badly enough and don't mind spending the money.
Now, on to my silly question:
I drive a 325IS which I love and is fantastic in nearly every way, one of it's short coming however, is cargo capacity and since I spend a fair number of weekends in a kayak or a canoe I find myself want a second, larger, car. I've been looking at buying an E34 525i touring but was dismayed to find out that here in the states they are only available with the GM slush boxes so I am wondering if a 5 speed Getrag transmission from a 3er will work?. I have a 5 speed from a 318IS and I am assuming that since the 318IS and 325IS use the same transmissions, and the 325IS and 525IT use the same engine, that the swap should be fairly straight forward. I would appreciate your insight and suggestions, and I look forward to hopefully adding an E34 to my driveway.
