Replace transmission from 6HP26 to 8HP70


I have bmw pre-lift X5 with 6HP26 gearbox. Looks the transmission is over, still working but weaky.
Question, is it possible to replace 6HP26 to 8HP70, which was used in X5 lift version?If yes, what should be done? I know, the CAS, EWF is programmed with installed gearbox and has to be reprogrammed.

Does it have different connector, mounting holes, etc?

Does it worth to do it? (8HP70 is cheaper and giving some fule saving)

best regards

You’re betting off replacing it with a junk yard unit or reman’d unit instead of going through the trouble of changing it. The car is prob only worth $8k, to pay a mechanic to do that work plus the cost of the trans will prob be almost half the value of the car.
