Any history/recognition of this 2002?
 
Hey all,

Just figured I'd see if any of the long-term members of this site recognize this 2002. It's been ours for the past 5, maybe even 6,7,8 years. Just thought it would be interesting to know some of the history.

It has E21 Recaros & a 6 speed transmission. Any idea of what the 6 speed transmission could be? Obviously not a factory option. The bell housing bolts directly up to the motor. I am stumped about what it could be. In the long period of time we've had it we still haven't had it up on the lift to see what it could be from any markings underneath. It is a real 6 speed though, I've driven it and put it into 5th/6th gear.

Regarding the 6spd, are you sure it's not a dogleg transmission which has the 5th gear to the bottom far right?

When you get a chance, have a look underneath at the transmission bell housing. The e30 M3 dogleg transmissions had bell housings that bolted onto the transmission where as the getrag units used on the standard M10 engine's, the bell housing was cast as part of the transmission case. If you see that the bell housing is bolted to the transmission, you likely have the dogleg. If you do, go and get that S14 you were telling me about!

The dogleg 2002 transmission (235/5) does not have a detachable bellhousing like the 265/5 you are referring to. And my guess is the 265 would be a very tight squeeze in the tunnel of an '02 (especially judging by how tight the space is in my own car with only a small 240 overdrive trans) so chances are it isn't what the OP has in his car.

You have our interest. Lift it and take a pic or 2

Hahaha well there is a certain E28 535i hogging the lift now. I may have to go and get a jack to look under and see what it is though! I created the thread hoping that someone would recognize the car/original owner. I guess not.

Hmm I will definitely check out to see if the bell housing is a separate piece. I thought it was an S14 but it actually turns out that it is an S38 from an M6. My dad is interested in buying it to fit into one of the E24s.

Definitely has a 5th in the upper right and a 6th just below. Far upper left is reverse.
