I'm in the unfortunate situation where my automatic transmission is now due for replacement. Looking into my options I have also looked to swap my transmission for a used one. What I ran into was a lot of transmissions with unknown model numbers to me and mislabelled models. One will fit a 320i while it was obvious it came from a 330i.
Also a thread on the compatibility of the 5HP19 between engines
made me wonder what euro spec transmissions would work on my car (a 2004 320i touring). Also what models of the 5HP19 are actually available here in the EU. Information on the various EU models is hard to find in comparison to the North American versions, so I did a bit of digging.
After a bit of research in the European ZF parts catalog
and RealOEM I came up with the list below. I am not claiming this list is complete or entirely correct. It did give me a bit more insight into what could work on my car. Hopefully this info can help someone else. If anyone can elaborate or rectify the list, that would be great.
|ZF 5HP19 Model||E46 model||Production year||Horse Power||Engine model||Torque converter||Weight Torque converter (RealOEM)||Variants (incomplete)||Other|
|1060000004||320i||10-1999 / 09-2000||150 HP||M52B20||K30||9,270 Kg||PM|
|1060000005||323i||03-1998 / 09-2000||170 HP||M52B25||D51||11,690 Kg||TW|
|1060000006||328i||02-1998 / 06-2000||192 HP||M52B28||S33||12,775 Kg||SA|
|1060000008||320i||09-2000 / 02-2005||170 HP||M54B22||T51||9,050 Kg||TN|
|1060000009||325i||09-2000 / 02-2005||192 HP||M54B25||C51||12 Kg||?||009 Only for North America?|
|1060000010||330i||06-2000 / 08-2006||231 HP||M54B30||U61||13,100 Kg||TU|
|1060000011||325i||09-2000 / 02-2005||192 HP||M54B25||D51 |
C51 for TT variant
|11,690 Kg |
|TW = Standard |
TT = Shorter final drive ratio
|323i also referenced as compatible via ZF|
For the NA market the 008 and 009 models are identical with exception of the torque converter. The 010 model is for the 330i and has different clutches, TCC, valve body, and torque converter due to higher power and torque.
The assumption I am making at this point is that the only outlier in this list is the 010. All the other models are identical with exception of the torque converter. I found a good 011 for a very decent price so I am taking the gamble it will work in my 320. Fingers crossed.
*Edited to add weights of TC.
