Manual transmission and mtech body kit

Hello I've recently bought a BMW e30 323i 1983. It's automatic, meaning not enough push for my liking.. I'm looking for a conversion. So far I've found nothing, just wondering if a 325i manual gearbox would fit/work in my 323i. Or if there is anyone who is selling a manual transmission gearbox for my 323i please notify on

On the other hand. Mtech body kits, I've read up on a few forums that that they only fit models from 84-90 e30. Please help as I don't want to buy the kit and end up having to cut and mould etc

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I've moved your thread over to the E30 forum for you. You should get more help here from our E30 owner members.

Good luck,

most gear boxes should change over with alil work. not 100% sure on the bell housing, but i do know youll need a different driveshaft, most likely from the donor car.
I know a lot about cars. I can look at a car's headlights and tell you exactly which way it's coming
