Mein Auto: 2001 330i
5 speed swap from A5S325Z

Just picked up a 2001 330i with no reverse and the A5S325Z trans. I'd like to do the 5 speed conversion and start driving this thing.

Looking for parts, advice or anyones experience in this subject.

Thanks

Jake

Or replace the reverse drum and be on your way for a lot less money.

Unless you're really itchin' to row gears.

I had considered that, and its still something I may do. I'd be more prone to selling the car if I leave it auto, and I'd for sure want to keep it a while if I did the swap.
Also, I'm not too keen on the idea of having to tear apart the auto trans, seems like a big pain in the ass, but thats based on research not experience. All advice appreciated.
