What other gearbox fits my Brit '79 635csi?
I am just starting work on a nice condition '79 brit model 635csi manual. The problem is the gearbox which is not repairable here. Anyone know what other boxes can fit? I hav been told a Z3 box will.
Other than that I expect some rust and electrical hassles but I am looking forward to starting it.
I'd have doubted a Z3 g/box will fit a 79 car! >>
however stranger things have happened/been made to fit!
I just hovered over you're login/screen name and see your domain as zw which I'm assuming is Zimbabwe.
I suggest you scour the South Africa dealers, breakers specialists and see if youcan source a proper gearbox for it, or get your unit sent away for repair there.
If you look over on the E34 forum, I know there's a poster/user there who's in South Africa and may be able to point you in the right direction.
Else, send in an email to BMWcar, TotalBMW and PerformanceBMW magazines and see if they can answer what other boxes may fit.
good luck !
