Sorry if its been asked before but google failed me ( maybe I used the wrong search terms ). Anyway, does anyone know who is the oem manufacturer of the manual tranny in our M3 E92s ? Thanks

I think its Getrag..The trans number starts with a "G" (GS6-53DZ - TJGC)

but also found this ..BMW Trans.pdf

from pg.5:

BMW transmissions are manufactured by two suppliers for the US market:
Zahnradfabrik Friedrichshafen: Commonly referred to as ZF. ZF manufactures both manual and automatic transmissions.

GM Powertrain - Hydramatic: Hydramatic is a manufacturing division of General Motors located in Strasbourg France. Hydramatic supplies automatic transmissions to BMW for four and six-cylinder vehicles.

Getrag or ZF, you can't go wrong. I've had both in BMW manual form in 4 years and like both.
