    converting an auto to a standard is a big job

    you have to mount the clutch pedal and mastercylinder, run clutch lines, buy a flywheel/ctuch for the tranny and probably shorten the driveshaft.


    it's not a small undertaking.

    If money isn't the biggest issue than sell it and buy a 5spd. Unless you are in it for the learning experience it's not going to be worth it. Will never feel the same as a stock 5spd.

    Ya I agree, wont be worth it but if you need the parts used, Bimmerparts in Duncan B.C or locally Manchester Auto but be prepared to be raped.

    If money isnt an issue... get another 318 and sell the current one. Hell for the amount of money required to do the swap I would take that cash, sell the 318 and get a REAL BMW not a slow ass 318.
