Mein Auto: '97 740iL
Hello everyone :)

I'm a long time member of bimmerforums.com and have been a member here for a long time, but haven't logged into bimmerfest in a couple years so I thought I'd reintroduce myself.

In August of 2007, I bought a 1997 Arctic Silver 740iL. Since then I have installed an aftermarket stereo system, clear fronts and tails, magnaflow cats, done a lot of preventative maintenance, and did a 6 speed conversion.

Just thought I'd say what's up to those of you who aren't members of bimmerforums or don't go there regularly. Hopefully I'll be spending a little bit more time in here than I have been.

Welcome back!
How tough was the 6 speed conversion (expensive)?

Thanks.

The conversion itself wasn't so bad, took me 9 months though because I didn't have the money all at once. Total cost was around $3500, but there were no labor costs since I did the conversion myself.
