WTB: 5-speed manual transmission..................................... ..........Socal

My tranny just went out on my 01 325ci and now I need to replace it I'm looking for a used 5-speed transmission. Obviously the less miles the better. I'm located in Socal (La/SD)... and while I don't mind paying for shipping, local is better.

If anybody has any idea where I can pick one up please let me know. Feel free to pm me. Thanks

How many miles did you have on your gearbox?

I have a 2002 325it and am just under 70K miles. Although BMW states you do not have to change the gear oil, I did drain and refill my box with a hi-end synthetic about 15K ago.

How many miles of use are acceptable and how much are you expecting to spend? I am interested in possibly upgrading to a 6-speed but want to find a good home for my 5-speed first.

Well I just got off the phone with a bmw recycling yard and I'll probably be picking up one from there. $790 shipped, 30k miles, and a 1 year warranty. I think that is about as good a deal as I can probably get.

Sounds like a pretty good deal. Do you know what exactly went wrong with your exisiting gearbox? Was it accidentally damaged through misuse or did it jsut fail from daily street driving?

I bought my car CPO with 40k miles on it. I don't drive my car hard and I certainly have never abused it. So I'm guessing the previous owner might have?

I thought CPO came usually with a 100K mile warranty after paying for the "dealer inspection". IMHO the entire CPO program is nothing but a scam! BMW NA charges a premium to label cars CPO that are simply turned over lease vehicles that some previous driver drove like they were stolen.

Ya it is 100k miles or like 7 years. In my case, time ran out...
