thanks guys for the help
the thing is that i wont have to pay to for the tranmission labor since i have access to a garage all i would have to do is get the transmission
by the way can the 318i tranny work on the 325i?
the 1995 m3 tranmission happens to have the same ecu number as mine #0 261 200 413 thats why i thought it would fit
i saw this nice little 1997 328i for sale i`ma check it out just in case
thanks for the help guys
