: Anyway, the basic price I have come up with to convert to a around the $5000 area. OUCH!! I know its probably worth it....but it is big chunk of change! Does anybody have any info on the conversion...or suggestions???

Did this to my 635CSi. You need a different length drive shaft, new pedal box and lots of other goodies but it IS worth the effort. Having a junked E34 manual to use as a parts car is a real bonus. It could be done for under $5K if you sourced your own parts.
