: The trans (2d gear) on a recently acquired E28-M5 is toasted. I wanted to replace it with another M5 trans but they're incredibly scarce and expensive. I've been told a std 535 trans can be fitted in its place and would like to hear from anyone who might have experience with this approach. Also, if anyone has a good used/rebuild original trans, please contact me.
: Thanks all,

I have a Getrag 265....5 speed close ratio bolted to mine. Initially I was told that this tranny
might not be able to handle the torgue...but so has not been an issue....I am sure they
are cheaper and easier to obtain.
