1995 740 Transmission is shot. Looking for used 540 or 740 transmission, right?

Hey there. A good friend of mine has a 1995 740 with the dreaded transmission issues. Can he use a 540's transmission? Did that come in stick?

Thanks for the help.

Acoording to the Bentley manual, up to 12/1996 the A5S 560Z transmission was used in the e38. The e39 540i used this same transmission up to 1/1997. Now I was told by an Indy shop that the later model A5S 440Z transmssion will also work with no modifications. However, there is no documentation to support this.
