You can use any E36 transmission you want. They're all interchangeable. Only thing I'm uncertain about is whether or not the Getrag 5-speed and ZF 5-speed use drive shafts of the same length... Could be. And I'm assuming you're referring to a manual transmission in your car.

whats up zegerman thanks for resonding but its an automatic and some one told me to look it up or ask someone cause he said that some trans are small and some are long like the 4dr 325 trans might be longer that the 2 door 325 just so i dont go buying the wrong trans cause one's short and one's long but you say their all interchangeable like the honda.

Short answer: you can use a transmission from ANY 325 (coupe, sedan, or convertible). You have other options, but I don't have the time to go into everything right now.
