It's too bad the input shaft is a different length, otherwise this would have been a pretty easy swap. Realistically for most of us it would make sense to just start with the actual M3 transmission...

What annoying button pushing? It's pretty much set and forget. I just leave mine set to 65/auto year round, and occasionally change the temperature of the face vents using the dial.

If you go for a 5-speed (rather than a 6), are okay with the used clutch and fly wheel, and do everything by yourself, you could possibly do it for around $1000.

It was earlier than that. Even v32 is up to date. Some even earlier versions may have some outdated M3 files, but the rest of the e46 files pretty much stopped being updated around 2005-2006
