Damn, that sucks to hear. I did the same thing many years ago doing some fwy pulls against a buddy in his new (at the time) Volvo S70 T5 with IPD chip and exhaust (pretty damn fast!). But (very) fortunately, no damage occurred. Or at least it's been running just fine for the past ~15 years or so since.

What stinks the most is backing out of my garage everyday and seeing the damn thing just sitting in there, begging to work again.

Either way, a lesson has been learned and I can almost promise it won't happen again. I'll definitely be taking attention to proper shifting technique, and hopefully getting my bushings refreshed along with an SSK sometimes in the future.
Definitely trying to stay looking at the positive side of all of this.

I just did a shifter rebuild.... BIG difference in shift confidence.

I'd pull the head yourself. Its a really straightforward job it you take your time and label everything correctly. You'll save yourself thousands if you just pay for a reconditioned head and gaskets/new hoses.

I've been pretty headstrong on doing it myself, mainly to save money haha.

Do you mind if I PM you something?

Also any DIY links? I found the one by pelican parts, but it doesn't seem like it does enough justice for someone who's a first timer.

Once was enough for me, I'll never deal with them again. That company is a joke. There are plenty of other reputable vendors doing good things in the BMW community. I do like the design of their rear shock tower reinforcement plates though. I have those in my E36.
100% agreed

Feel free to PM me. I don't think there's a DIY for the head gasket but there are very detailed ones about removing/installing the cams which is the hardest part. Any other questions you have along the way I'm sure the forum will answer as you go!

There might be head DIY on bimmerforums. I found a couple when I first did this about 10 years ago. There are probably newer ones now.

Definitley buy yourself a Bentley repair manual if you want to DIY this job. It's worth it

Sorry to read your situation...I money shift couple of times; however, as soon as it’s done, I realize what I did and never release the clutch until save speed.

Here are some videos:
