    Wassup everyone! I just got a 525i for £200 quid and thought it was quite a bargain! 100k on it. it's a auto and i'm planning for the things I need/ to do for a manual conversion. it will be used as a track car in the near future. Anyways, i have still yet to touch the car! it will be at my place next weekend... excited
    Lovin the M50 engine...

    So far I've learnt that I need a manual gearbox(DUH ) different propshaft, and drive shaft i think? clutch cylinder/cables, pedals, flywheel?, clutch kit and stuff. and some ecu changes ? i'm not sure, hoping to learn alot here on Bimmerforums.

    Any advice for the conversion would be very much appreciated... I don't have much experience with trannys
    cheers

    edit: I forgot to add some pics of it
