  2. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I recently manual swapped my e36(1999 323i) causing it to throw a p0600 code due to auto trans ecu. After replacing ecu the car cranks but won’t start, ews is deleted and it starts if the old ecu is installed.

    I have a 2007 BMW 530I that I wish to install a manual transmission in. I know I need a new driveshaft, clutch, flywheel, and transmission, however I would like to know if there are any other parts required and where to source them. And if there's anything I should know or look out for before...
  4. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey so I'm kind of lost at this point and I've read A LOT and I'm either reading the wrong things, cant find the right things, or am very slow. But either way I've decided to finally start a post. So I messed my car up and basically I ended up going with the option to shell swap. I crashed an 03...

  6. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey all, After finding a low mileage pre-LCI 2007 530xiT with automatic transmission and purchasing it I ran into some worries.. Long story short, after getting the OK from indy mechanic that everything was solid, I pushed the car a little bit to see what the N52 could do compared to the N54 in...
  7. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hello, I just bought a 1995 530i (e34) with the M60 V8 engine. However, the auto transmission appears to be pretty knackered (stall speed sensor and speed sensors need replacing, aside from who knows what inside) and now I'm thinking of simply swapping that auto for a manual transmission. I...

  9. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I've been lusting after an E36 for months now, but I still have some reservations/questions about the car, so I was hoping Bimmerfest's members could help me out by offering their advice. -My ideal E36 would be an M3 Sedan, although I'm certainly not opposed to any of the other M3 or E36...
  10. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Okay so I'm currently rebuilding my M50 Motor, and thanks to tax return time I have enough money to buy a donor car for a manual swap. I found a cheap 318ti (no motor) but I can't find much online about swapping its manual into a I6 e36. What I have found is that the 318s use the same Getrag...

    G'day everyone! So, this is my first post, and before you go all "here we go again..." on me, I should let you know that I'm already committed and have a manual box on the way to my house right now (from Lithuania of all places)! I'm just fishing for any helpful tips before I get this box...

  13. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey guys and gals! I'm looking down the barrel of the purchase of a used manual transmission plus most associated parts (no pilot bearing, shift knob/boot), including the driveshaft and rear differential, to do a manual swap on my 530i. The parts are from a "totaled" (rear quarter/trunk damage...
