My Ride: E36 M54B30
Question Compatible 6 spd gearboxes with M54B30?

Guys,

I`m trying to understand boxes from which manual cars will be direct plug & play with my M54B30 engine, but worried to buy wrong box. Turns out there are two types with different splines?

Will Getrag from E36 M3 3.2 bolt up to M54? Will box from E46 M3 bolt up to M54? Any other BMW`s maybe? But no mods/cutting/welding - direct plug & play as its road legal everyday car and I need to pass yearly checks to get ticket.

Thanks

My engine came off 2002 car, but it says 6 speed gearboxes started on 03/2003. Will it fit my engine ?

Yes but if you look at which ones of those topics involve mating a 6-speed up to an M54b30 then thats all you really need to know right~?

Bought a 6 speed manual off 2004 325ti. But as far as I understand, I also need flywheel and clutch from >2003 (FL) E46.
