dont think you should even think about it...


Your car is the E36 chassis, the 328i was made between 1995-98. If you find a trans mated to the same engine, you might get lucky. But the E36 cars are getting harder to find these days. You best bet might be a rebuild at this point.

Thank you there are gears coming out the side i haven't taken it apart yet but im cetin that theres a hole in the side of the housing what other problems can i expect to have because of. This

WhT other bmws have the same moter as the 1998 328i manual trans.?
