yeah, im driving a 96 328i thats automatic and i was maybe looking to change it too manual...do u have any idea what the cost would be on doing so and is it really worth it. i have the steptronic thing now but i dunno if i can always drive it that way cuz it has to do damage to the engine i assume ??? but do u think its worth it or stay with aout...iis it real bad if i drive it in step or what....any long term effects....

Thanx for ur help

why not just trade your car in for a manual one?

Manual transmission
Master Clutch Cylinder
Slave Cylinder
all the pedals

and I think you have to fool the computer into thinking it's still an automatic w/steptronic, even though you have a manual.

Anything can be done for money but why go thru the hassle and all the headaches?? just sell and buy a manual e36.
