If you want to get junkyard parts remember one thing, if it was wrecked you know it was running/driving. You may not know how well, but it was.

Also, you can use a e39 540i/6 box i believe.. They are far more common.

As i understand it, we can use there's but they can't use ours.. Some sensor pick up thing. Otherwise should be fine. Small change in case shape. Otherwise the same. This is what i believe. Please correct me if i am wrong.

You can use the E39 box, but they cannot use ours because of the CPS.
Their CPS is on the underside of the box, but for us it does not matter, just remove it.

the 6th gear is very hard to turn on. I need to kick rpm to 5000 then it turns on. 5th gear is good to turn on in 50 miles after 4th but on freeway on 65 miles its hard. There is a small noise from the gear box while I am starting on the first gear with clutch (Only while clutching). No leaks. Nothing else. Still drives. 166k miles on it.

I can sell it if I find a better one. Where are you located? How much would you pay for it?
