Don't know if that will work. 735 is a straight six, 740 is a V8.

Thankx, just thought maybe because both are E32 transmissions .

Are there any substitutions That will work in a 1992 735i ?


You may be able to use one out of a 535i of a similar year (E34). Do a little research. Not sure how active that section is, but look at the E32 section on
