Wish they had pictures but, 325xi - can't verify build since all the decoder sites seem to be down - listed as a manual but, VIN makes me think its an Auto. Service history looks good, one accident when it was rear ended. 120,000 miles. Could be worth a look if you're local.

One of the service records indicated the fan clutch was replaced so sounds like an auto.🙁

All things being equal, do you guys think that a facelift with a swapped 6 speed should be priced much higher than a swapped 5 speed?

I think it would carry a premium, the question is how much. Probably not more than the price of the transmission, maybe?

I think the 6sp is a much, much better transmission than the 5.

Facelift doesn't make a difference. 6-speed is worth something, for sure

Agreed it would command more, but not a huge amount more. I don't think I'd pay more than $1k more for an extra gear, given all other aspects of the cars were equal, and that would be max.

It is one of those cases where someone who wanted it would value it, so if you want the higher value be prepared to wait.

but $1k on the outside

Thank you....Im in the process of doing a 6 speed swap and although I am not looking to move it, eventually we all get tired...and I have to say, getting 6 speed parts is difficult and expensive.

I mentioned facelift since it seems many prefer then non-face lifted look.

That's a bit painful to read but you're probably on the money.

Thanks for responding...I certainly would pay more but how much was the question in my head...
