  1. General E46 Forum
    So to make this simple, I’ve been searching for a manual trans swap kit meaning the trans, drive shaft and pedals and I recently found one for a bit cheaper and I’m close to getting it but it’s from a 2001 e39 3L so I’m asking you guys if a e39 5 speed mt will fit and work in a e46. Thanks in...

    I cant think of why my pedal would quit working. I recently did a automatic to manual swap on my e46 and the gas was working while i was trying to bleed the clutch... somehow had too much pressure in there. Broke my whole pedal assembly bracket. Got a new bracket, and got the clutch working...

    I had recently done a manual swap in my 03 325i I brought it to a euro tuner to get the ecu recoded to get the lights off and to make the car recognize it’s now manual. After driving an hour away they told me they couldn’t connect with the EWS but were able to connect to the DME we thought the...

    Hi all I'm new here. I currently own a 2001 E46 325ci Msport manual Imola Red. I have bought a 2003 330ci auto non M. I'm going to plant the 3.0L auto engine into my 2.5L manual. I'm dropping the engine from the subframe so all the suspension and brakes get carried over. i will also be swapping...

    Preface Overall, this is just a long writeup of my personal experience 6 speed swapping my 2004 330xi. This won't cover anything about the ‘how to’ as there are very good write ups by other users on this forum and others. However, If anyone is going through the swap now or just has questions...

    Looking for 6MT/5MT swap kit for my 04 330ci
  10. General E46 Forum
    So i got 325ci 5 speed getrag transmission with everything included for a swap. From what I researched already the tranny should bolt up fine. I've noticed where the flex joint meets the transmission is smaller than the 330s. is this ok or should i have gotten a 330 transmission and driveshaft...

    Figured we could start a list of shops across the region that people have had the auto to manual swap done at, but also... about to start working on the auto to manual conversion on my 2000 323i and looking for a shop to do the coding & error light clearing after its done. Has anyone here in...

    Hello, I have a 97 328is with a vf engineering supercharger kit. Fun car but the only drawback is that it's an automatic. I have been slowly collecting all the parts I need to do the conversion. I recently came across a great deal on a 6speed Trans from a 330xi. I am trying to quickly verify...
  13. General E46 Forum
    New to the forums here. But a short synapses of my dilema is that I've manual swapped my 01 330ci and everything is set in and plugged in EXCEPT the clutch safety switch. I haven't had any luck on finding wiring diagrams or anything of that sort. But from what I've been told I can just jump the...
