I think you would need a new or rebuilt transmission. If you can get the car cheap enough and like working on cars, go ahead. But buying an BMW E46 and working on it yourself is rewarding. There are lots of DIY's out there. But if your having other do the work on it. Pass....


I wouldn't buy it unless you can get it for a couple hundred dollars. BMW parts are expensive, even good used parts. God help you if it's not really the transmission but it's an electrical problem that's making it not want to move. That will become a nightmare very fast!! HTH. -Jim
