I am testing the waters, I might throw in cash if someone wants to use their car as a DD. I enjoyed having an Auto as a daily driver, but now it's not my Daily Driver and thought it would be fun to have a manual again. Problem?

It's gonna be hard to find someone who is gonna trade similar car. People like to trade up (newer car, less miles). Tha leaves pretty small group of e46 owners.
You might get lucky if someone bought the car to learn how to drive stick (and failed) or if someone lost a leg (the only reason why I would drive an auto ).

buy one from a salvage yard for a couple hundred dollars and install it...

an auto tranny at that high of mileage already has one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel...good luck getting someone to swap their bulletproof manual trans for a ticking time bomb.

Thank you, mine's in great shape but I did not consider this, you're right.

Ok, what if I change thread to anyone know of a "Man Tranny" sitting around in a salvage yard, or a part out???? Thanks!

Sorry to burst your bubble, but every automatic tranny has a chance to kick the bucket

I'm gonna have 120K miles 5 speed for sale in about a week (with some goodies like FW, clutch, driveshaft, shifter assy ...)
PM me for details, I'm hoping to find local buyer first.
