Mein Auto: 750i
2000 750i transmissions

Hello, I would like some advice on getting a new transmission for my 750i. I was looking at a Getrag S6S 560G

type 286 or 286/6

That's the 6 speed manual transmission used on 850i/CSi would this fit a 2000 750i? bolt on or would I have to get an adapter plate or something to get this to fit.
Basically I was thinking of just treating the 750i as a 850 csi even switching the computers to the 850's computer so everything work with each other. As from my research there is nothing different between these two engines just the transmission
Thanks for any help with this

Can be done, but not simple. See UUC owner Rob Levinson's page. Also, it will be VERY expensive.

Thank for the advice got in contact with Rob he says the real hickup is the computer system. I was either thinking of getting a custom PC for this application or using the 850ci computer for it.
