Sorry to disappoint you,
it will not fit. At least not without a considerable machanical and engineering effort. The 4-speed is amuch better match for the V-12 than the 5-speed is for the V-8. Both transmissions are very much software and electronic controlled and any modifications could lead to a disaster. Also the 5-speed even rebuilt cost about 60% more than the 4-speed. IMHO both are inferiour to the automatic transmissions Mercedes makes for their big blocks. I had 4 Mercedes cars and have my 3rd 750i now, plus 2 735s.
You could put a 6-speed manual from an E31 in the 750 after some minor mods.
Regards Ekkehart
