    I think the tag will be sufficient for determining which configuration it is.
    I'll have one of each... I'll be getting tooth counts all over the place.

    OBTW, here are the configuration identifiers:

    GS6-53BZ-THGZ 02/2002 - 07/2010
    E60 LCI through 12/2009

    GS6-53BZ-THA9 01/2009 - 06/2013
    F10 through 06/2013

    GS6-53DZ-THGX 03/2006 - 09/2008
    E93 LCI through 10/2013
    E60 LCI through 12/2009
    It has to be, really :) All DZ gearboxes i have checked has got the 20 degree angle and diesel ratios, the E46/E39 x30d GS6-53DZ/GS5-39DZ and E9x 320d-330d GS6-37DZ/53DZ gearboxes for example is commonly used on turbo builds over here.
    The E9x 335i GS6-53BZ is getting more common because of 30 degree angle and better gearing ratios.

    As long as one can make one's own button, a Tilton is actually cheaper than an aluminum flywheel & performance clutch combo typically sold for BMW's, especially V8's and/or the S62.
    The Tilton pressure plate is about $500 and the disks are about $200.
    UUC's clutch & flywheel combos for the E39 M5 *START* at $1800, but that company isn't exactly known for bargain prices.

    yeah, but not cheap.

    I would have said "all out" would be a Jerico, Lenco or Weismann...

    A dual organic QM or organic/ceramic Tilton is supposedly fairly street friendly.

    interestingly, the N series motors still have the hole for the pilot bearing in the crankshaft (the M20 bearing is a direct fit).

    but yeah, if you're going all out it probably doesn't make a big difference.

    I haven't discussed a clutch much yet because I was expecting to use a Tilton or Quartermaster dual disk 7.25" unit. I'd use an M62 flexplate with a custom made "button" bolted down on top of it to act as the friction surface and clamping face for the clutch. I can easily make that part taller to account for a shorter input shaft, and make it to accept the pilot bearing as well. It's probably easier that way as I can use the correct pilot bearing for the transmission and don't have to worry about finding one that fits both the crank bore and the input shaft.

    Just an FYI - if you're looking at transmissions from later BMWs, they have a shorter input shaft - and the pilot bearing is part of the flywheel, rather than going into the crank. Basically any of the "N" series motors have transmissions with the shorter shaft. And at least some quantity of those engines have flywheels with a 6 bolt pattern instead of 8.

    RealOEM disagrees:

    No manual transmission listed for US cars:
    http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/part...-E90N-BMW-335d

    No manual transmission listed for Euro cars:
    http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/part...-E90N-BMW-335d

    I initially only checked 335d's, but the 325d's and 330d's do come with -53DZ's
    http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/part...11&series=E90N

    But that doesn't change the fact that all the turbo 6 cylinder gas cars that I checked on *also* came with the DZ trans, and only the V8's received the BZ.
    BMW did eventually "downgrade" the turbo 6's to the GS6-45BZ, and entirely stopped offering manual transmissions with the V8's.

    GS6-37BZ (new designation according to BMW Group Standard GS 90007)
    G drive
    S Transmission type. S = Manual transmission. A = Automatic transmission
    6 Number of forward gears
    - = Standard with manual gearshift. HP = Hydraulic planetary gear
    37 Transmission type. 26 = D-transmission. 31 = C-transmission. 39 = F-transmission. 37 = H-transmission. 53 = G-transmission
    B Gear set. B = Petrol/gasoline gear ratio. D = Diesel gear ratio
    Z Code letter of transmission manufacturer. G = Getrag. Z = ZF (Zahnradfabrik Friedrichshafen)
