Getrag 420g six speed transmission M5 540i



Looking to sell a 6spd gearbox from a 2002 540i.

~230xxx kms, the car drove into the dismantlers with bad timing chain guides. Tranny works fine, no input shaft wobble or output shaft leaks (a bit at the midsection joint). These transmissions are well known for their durability!

This transmission will fit any M6x or S62 engine. Given it came from a M62, you will not need to drill it to fit the hall speed sensor if mating to that engine (unlike a M60 trans, which has no hole for it). You can modify the bellhousing to mate to a M7x as well. Will fit E31 840i, E32 740i, E34 530i, 540i, E39 535i, 540i, M5, E38 740i.

Looking for $800. Can include shifter carrier+bearing, selector shaft, trans brace+mounts and clutch fork+spring for an extra $50. I can include an E39 driveshaft and guibo for another $80 as well.

The tranny weighs just under 100lbs. PM for details.
Thanks for looking!

Modifying isn't quite the right word, it's more of an adapter, as such:

A few people have done it themselves too, but it looks a bit cruder, ex: http://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/sh...Manual-Gearbox. To expand on it a bit for someone trying to do that, the V12 clutch and flywheel fit right into the 420g in stock form, it's in fact a popular upgrade for V8 owners. Given the price of the 560g, it's no surpise more V12 6spd swaps are going with the 420g and adapter route. The last run of V12 manual trannies went up five years ago, I don't know how many are left (https://www.bmwcca.org/forum/index.p...ing-sold.5386/)

This has the same guts as an E46 M3 tranny, but a different belhousing?

Correct. I belive the output flange may be the only other difference, but don't quote me on that
