Those 5 speeds are easy enough to find, and it sounds like the one in your car has seen better days. Be sure when you have it out to replace the bushings on the shift plate and shift linkage, and check the condition of the clutch components. Never want to have a clutch go out right after you've done all that work.<br>-alan<br>83 320i<br>79 320i
