Hey all I just bought a mint 90 325i convertible, but it is auto and i want to swap it into manual. I saw someone selling a 6 spd. out of a 97 Z3- are these possible to convert/ modify? Or should i just stick to getting a 5 spd from another e30? Also does anyone know how expensive of a job it is to swap transmissions?? Or know anyone in LA that can do it?? :D

i did an auto to manual swap, using the e30 5 speed. Parts cost me about $1000, and I did all the labor myself on weekends. It was pretty tough but do-able.

flywheel, clutch kit, shifter linkage (change bushings while you have it out!), tranny mounts, and some fabrication.

Don't forget the pedals and master/slave cylinders
