Default 535i 6AT > 6MT Parts list - 02-23-2018, 08:37 AM

I have been working on a parts list for some time now and have it just about finalized with prices for all parts needed. *This only applies to an 08 535i rwd* I highlighted on the diagram what parts are being replaced and or needed. The parts not highlighted are either not needed or will be re-used from the car. Following the diagrams will be the parts associated in an ECS shopping cart for part number reference and brand reference. I do have questions and will ask throughout the pictures. I have a page on Facebook called "RyaN54k" So if you are having issues with pictures here check them out there....

I will make each section a new post in the thread for easier reference. So please be patient before posting as this will take a few hours to post.

In the mean time

TRANSMISSION

What parts would you guys suggest replacing? I did not plan on replacing any parts from one of the diagram. Flywheel will be M-Factory.

Driveshaft

The manual driveshaft is 4mm longer than the auto driveshaft. Can I use my auto driveshaft? The bolts were all cross-referenced back to the auto so no bolts needed.

Pedals & Lines & Clutch

I will use 550i clutch for now, but this all depends on how much I can save sourcing parts.

I think that is it. This does only reference Genuine BMW. Please understand I may use Febi, Lemforder, Meyle, Etc to lower cost. I may also buy upgraded bushings and parts if I can make sense of it. This is going to be fun!!!

I may have found a solution to the driveshaft issue.! and maybe a way for us to better interchange driveshaft parts. Let me know what you think.

The manual driveshaft is 4mm longer according to realoem



Now...If you look at the broken down parts, part #12 has a washer designated for manual or auto. The manual is 40mm and the auto is 36mm. Does this account for the 4mm difference? *Note* par #'s 8 & 10 also designate manual or auto....






What do you guys think? IS this washer the 4mm difference?

The washer is not the difference, it is a different driveshaft all together. follow my build thread for updates as I have dramatically cut this list and the cost. Looking to have this completed for just under $2500.
