I'm thinking its a good deal .
If you can get the motor for $2500 with a tranny that's a very good deal, because it's easily worth double that, so if I were you I'd buy it before someone else does.

And no, you don't want to bother with the SMG. You'll pretty much need to convert your entire E30 electronics to E46 electronics to work. If you're up for such a feat I doubt it since you're asking if an S54 will fit into an E30. Not to mention the cost of ALL the electronics from an E46 M3. Plus there will be some fabrication involved. It's an easy $10k project believe me.

You're better off getting the motor and running a stand alone as someone already mentioned.
