Signed up as I am looking at buying e36 325i with a bad tranny and doing an auto tranny replacement. Previously had a e39 540i and miss the car. Replaced everything on that car that is typical to poor maintenance and mileage (i.e. osv valve, all gaskets, front control arm set,etc). Pretty much new everything about the e39 by the time I was done. Time to learn about another model!
