    Well last year about this time I got a great deal on a 5 speed complete swap. This was installed into my 95 540i. A couple of months ago I ran into a deal on a another 95 540i that had the sport options. I bought to use as my parts car. Well now I just finished the swap from automatic to 5 speed to 6 speed. I used the LSD that was in the parts car also, OMG this is a new car. The way it drives and accelerates it just amazing. The black leather sports seats were a simple drop in as they had memory already. I also found that the sway bars on the parts car where considerably larger than what was on my car, so I swapped them also smiles. I have been told that the springs on the car are M-tech also, I dont know this for sure is there away to know, number on them or something. I'm running Eibach pros with billies now and like the way they feel and the stance of the car. I guess the last thing for me is to find a weighted shifter knob with the 6 speed diagram lol. You really got to love them E34's.
