If I know how to do it, I want to replace my auto to manual.
Does anyone knows this is direct plug in? Price is nice and kind of local but no idea how much it will cost.

Anyway, bump for good price.

This is far from plug and play. It would be more cost effective just to sell the auto and get a manual car, if you don't have the tools and know-how to DIY.

BMW mechanic will know exactly how to do the swap

For the do it your selfer it might be a bit of a challenge, but any BMW mechanic will know what is needed for the swap. Your auto car should have all the bolt holes for pedals, transmission support and shifter, etc. You'll have to source a shifter, pedals and a drive shaft, as I don't have those for sale.
