Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash

-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    FEELER- anyone want a 6 speed?

    I have a breaker in the UK I have done a good deal of business with lately. I started thinking about a 6 speed transmission for my project lately. As it turns out, ZF six speeds are quite common in Europe and share the same pattern as the Getrag 265. Most of them come out of the Europe-only 320d built from 2003-2006. If five of us want one, the price would be $750 each shipped to me in Denver. I work for a trucking company so I could ship to the rest of the US for another 50 bucks. Bear in mind that people drive a lot less across the pond and none of the transmissions he sees have done 70k miles. PM me if interested and thanks.

        82 528e and 85 535 came with g265, not sure if the location of the bell housing bolts are different, but just FYI. Awaiting more info from OP.

          265 has a removable bellhousing. The '82 528e was the only 265 that that ever had a m20 bolt pattern, a 1 year only bell housing.

          A 265 bolt pattern is M30/M10 and similar 99.99% of the time. If OP was suggesting the 6 speed fit M20 bolt patterns, a better choice of gearbox to compare to would be suggested.

                Is it a direct bolt-in with no other changes needed?

                  FEELER- anyone want a 6 speed?

                  Whats the gearing on these guys? I bet a lot of the swap guys would love a tall 6th for highway cruising. Also, no difference in the spacing for the clutch, 100% bolt on?


                  Edit - whooops...bolt on question asked already.
                  Swanny!

                      This is what the wiki says,

                      The ZF S6-37 is a 6-speed manual transmission manufactured by ZF Friedrichshafen AG. It is designed for longitudinal engine applications, and is rated to handle up to 370 newton metres (273 lbf·ft) of torque.
                      Gear ratios:
                      1 2 3 4 5 6 R
                      4.350 2.496 1.665 1.234 1.000 0.851 3.926------zf
                      3.83:1 2.20:1 1.40:1 1.00:1 0.81:1 3.71:1-----g260

                      So it doesn't give you a longer highway gear, just an extra, shorter gear

                        Thinking since they were for late model they would most likely fit 24V engine pattern.

                          So the 6th gear is just like the 5th gear in the G260?
