My Ride: 99 323i & 00 323i
00 323i SMG trans into 99 323i auto

I already have both cars, the 99 323i has a perfect body but a bad motor... the 00 323i has a perfect running motor/trans but was rolled in an accident. being that I have both cars how hard would it be to swap the SMG trans with the motor into my 99? on a side note I will be parting out the car once I swap motors.

does the smg shifter need a different harness than the auto? as far as I can think its the trans, shifter, crossmember, and driveshaft. unsure if I will run into any other problems... the stock trans in the 99 is fine too i just figure I might as well swap to the smg trans if I can.
