My Ride: tries its best
what to do!?

Long story short, I have an auto transmission and a manual would be waay more fun to drive.
So I've been thinking and researching and thinking and researching more, and I believe I have two options: 1) trade-in for a manual car, and 2) 5-spd swap. Unfortunately I now can't trade in for much because someone hit me a week ago, so it seems like the most cost-effective thing to do now would be to drive my car into the ground rather than trade it for a low price..

I would be perfectly happy to drive my e46 forever...if it was only a stick shift! I've read other 5 spd-swap threads but it looks complex and expensive at best..anyone have ideas? Anyone have a good swapping-experience?
