Mein Auto: 1996 BMW Z3
1.9l transmission swap

Hey guys, i have a 96 z3 thats an automatic. I have lived with it for a little while now but i think its time to look into swapping over to a manual. Here are a few questions i had:
1.Does anyone know approx cost?
2. What about the parts required?
3. has anyone done this before? (if so was it a hassle?)
and before people start telling me to just get a new car, that is not an option since i dont want to give up a car that barely has any mileage on it (just hit 59,000)
Any help would be amazing.
