So after doing a 5 speed getrag swap on my 04 330ci I was wondering if I am able to eliminate all the auto trans wire harness connectors from the setup. Specifically can I actually cut out and remove them because I am doing a full wire tuck and since I dont have the auto trans anymore i figured it would be ok. Any input is welcomed

You can if you want to. Most people just tuck the auto trans wiring near the transmission and zip-tie it out of the the way. It IS important you unplug the EGS computer completely. I removed mine and just left wires alone - maybe I taped ends so they won't short. I DID re-use some of my auto shifting wiring to wire in the cruise control switch. It was easier to run wires from pedals to shifter than it was from pedals to DME.. The shifter wires already ran to the DME, so I re-used a couple of them.
