Default Does the E36 M3 tranny have a VIN stamped on it?

Reason I ask is that I was negotiating the sale of my M3/4/6 earlier today and the buyer was turned off that I didn't have the original automatic transmission "takes it away from being original numbers and all" is what he said.

The car was professionally swapped by a shop over to an E46 6 speed tranny with all new Euro E36 6 speed parts, I would think this is a good thing lol

Lol. He's not going to be the right buyer for that car. Did you let him know he isn't buying a 1973 carrera RS, or be able to retire flipping an e36? If your car is the one I'm thinking of, hold out a couple days and someone who appreciates it will come along quickly.

I'm not asking allot for a very rare and pristine car but the prospective buyer is out based on this and a $250 difference in my minimum and what he was willing to pay.

I just listed it on BMWCCA this afternoon as well as some local BMW/Porsche groups near me in Texas. I need to put a nice add with pics up on this board when I get time from work to clean the car up for a shoot.

Over here we have no VIN on anything but the chassis. Not even a sticker.

Even the service booklet has no engine/tranny nr. At least not 100% of the time.
