      You can get an S54+6speed with all accessories and harness for $4500 and if you're willing to sell the transmission for $1800, that's an S54 for $2700.

      Standard 24v swap parts + ABL harness are all you would need to swap it
      Yup. Where are you finding them for $4500 complete though? Carpart?

      Serious here....

      Embarrassing!

      The SMG has a different harness, ECU, etc. Same motor, but it would take work and money to get it to play nice with a 6 speed.
      They really tanked when BMW dropped longblock prices to $7k for a new one after the bearings + pistons attempting to reach orbit at 7800rpm issues became known and they had to replace a bunch of them. So they dropped the price.

      Then the E46 crashed in price when the bloated pig that is the E9x came around, and the prices dropped further.

      It's to the point where you can get an S54 cheaper than an S52. I'm pretty sure that's because to swap an S54 into anything that didn't come with one, you have to spend a fair bit on the electronics....but still.

      But this time there's no V12 idea, nor am I trying to ringlead it. There's an actual car that runs and works!

          Its still annoying, but it works. It sounds amazing in the high rpm but it rasps around 3000rpm and i hate it.

          I'm goin up to wings tonight if you wanna carpool, you could meet me at my house. pm me if you want my details...
