    E46 Auto to manual swap

    Hi all, I have recently been thinking about swapping out the steptronic auto in my 325ci a manual gearbox as the prices for manual bmw coupes are pretty pricey at least here in Australia. So the advice i am seeking is, What manual gearbox would you guys recommend? What should i expect the pricing to be to undertake this task? is it actually good idea to do this? and any other other advice you guys could give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Search E46Fanatics. The swap is outlined there.

    Might as well do a motor swap like a 1j and R154.

    IMO it's not worth it to swap these cars as the cost of the swap doesn't make sense given the value of the car.
