Default Re: Low mileage 3/4/6 on BaT

The owner said he wasn't a collector and just said he wanted to own it and drive it for at least 10 years.
Just an enthusiast with a good job I guess. Good for him.

Sometimes not original is better. And lets be real, it’s not some major big difference in appearance, just an extra gear available.

How does that tranny compare to the stock 5 speed ZF?

More expensive w/ known synchro issues. That said I had one in my M3/4/6 and it was great, for a car that sees a lot of highway use / high speed cruising its awesome.

I think it has 1 more gear...

The main advantage of the 6 speed, is that you can comfortably increase your differential ratio, and still have reasonable RPM on the highway.

That’s the general consensus. The ZF5 is one of the nicer gearboxes. The Getrag 6 speed is know to be notchy.

And yes, it’s a true overdrive. My M3 gets better highway mileage than my 328i. The 6th gear offsets the higher diff ratio, so revs are lower.

But on anything but the highway, that number flies quickly out the window

Considering most used 320z that haven’t seen repair are shit, I’ll take the 420g anyday. I hate the trans in my 98. Can’t wait to get this one swapped to the Getrag like the 96 is.
