I've been looking at the E34 5xxiT (52iT and 530iT) as a replacement for my current car. One issue that I have with the North American imports is that they only came with an automatic transmission.
Has anyone on this list performed a transmission swap, replacing the automatic with a 5-speed? If you've done this, could you please send me a not, describing the level of complexity and cost associated with it? I would probably have the work done by a mechanic, but I'd like to know what it would take to get the work done.
On another note, for owners of the E34 Touring, what are your opinions of the car?
