    Hi guys, I'm currently in the process of taking my trans off my manual e46 318i to replace clutch and have removed everything and am ready for the trans to drop out. However, after a fight with the trans, it has only moved an inch or two from the block and I can just see the flywheel. There is...

    Hello. I have a compact 318ti e46. I replaced the engine with a m54b25. The gearbox is the Getrag from the 318i. I use a differential from the 318ti engine (N42B20). Since I keep breaking it, I bought a 188 type differential from a 323i. My question is what dtiveshaft should I put in to...

    Hi guys, I replaced my input shaft seal today. The old seal sat flush to the top of the hole It is was inserted in, however Ive accidentally driven mine in about a millimetre below the top of the hole. Does this matter? Will it leak if I put the box in the car like this? thanks for any help.

    Hi guys, my e46 320i manual has had a terrible lurch when coming off and on the throttle. It’s worse in low gears but still there a bit in 4th and 5th. I also find that when trying to crawl forward in 1st gear, the car quite violently bounces forward and back when you so much as even touch the...

    I have an 2001 E46 sedan with the standard 5 speed transmission i have heard that this transmission and gearbox isnt the best around so i was wondering whether or not its a good idea to do a transmission and gearbox swap? Should i just keep the transmission the same or swap it out for a 6 speed?

    I have a 2000 BMW 323i Auto with the GM ZF transmission and I was wondering if I can use an E36 gearbox from an earlier year? My car has an E36 engine (M52TUB25) common in the E36 years so the question is worth a shot and if so where is a good DIY on it? Thanks guys.

    The car is a 99 323i with manual gearbox. I have a problem similar to this one. If the RPM are too low, the shifter just pops back into neutral. If I try to hold it in 3rd gear position, it feels like the gears might be grinding, so I let go and it pops back into neutral. If I increase the RPM...
