In Reply to: Different manual transm. on 323 than 328?......... posted by Steve on November 11, 1998 at 10:31:32:
I have read somewhere (Autoweek maybe???) that they do have different transmissions made by different companies. I will see if I can find the article and post what I find.
: I have read nowhere that the 323i has a DIFFERENT manual transmission. I know the gear ratios are different, but the make and the tranny is all BMW and I believe they are the same manufacturer.
: If you back up the fact the 323i manual is made by a different manufacturer, I will believe you. Having read countless articles on the E46 323/328
: on the net, German mags, BMW magazines and so forth, I have not found this to be true Bruce. If you tell me where you saw this, I will read and tell you if you are right and I am wrong.
