325xi Auto to 6 speed swap.

Finally found a good deal on a used 03+ 330xi 6 speed transmission. At the moment I'm gathering parts for the swap, I'll update this thread with developments as they happen. For all the information not covered in this thread (pedals, wiring/etc) go to the official 5 speed swap thread

Parts:
-2003+ 330xi 6 speed Transmission

-6 speed JB Racing LTW Flywheel

-330xi Clutch Kit (I picked up a NIB ZHP Clutch - It doesn't share the same part number as the 330xi but from my research they are virtually identical)
-330xi Clutch release fork, clip and bushing (I like to replace these when I do a clutch)
-325xi Rear Main Seal (again just some PM)
-330xi Complete shifter linkage assembly (I got this all from the dealer with a z4 3.0 shifter, as I don't like how tall xi shifts sit- might need some modification to fit properly)
-Pedals and Hydraulics (I picked all this up used locally off a 01 325i as it isn't XI specific)
-Also picked up a nice illuminated 6 speed m3 shift boot/knob combo

Now I just have to see if that 6 speed box bolts up to my early transfer case *fingers crossed*
