The manual transmissions are much better, though. You can get a whole used swap kit for around $500, and they're not too difficult to swap if you're mechanically inclined.
Yeah I wasn't sure how difficult It would be. I'll do some research. If I buy it I'll be a regular over here. I hang around on the E30 forum mostly. Thanks for the info.
