Both transmission are from 540i Sports and have low miles but are currently inoperable (less than 120k and 90k). I bought for parts and possibly to attempt to rebuild but have since sold both e39s and have no use for them.

Have these been disassembled? It looks like the bolts on the tailshaft cover of the right side transmission have been removed. Can you post some pics of either side of each please. Are they from an M5 or 540i? The M5 transmissions have a switch on the driver side at the rear of the transmission that the 540i ones don't have. Thanks.

Both transmissions are from 540i 6 speeds (the approximate mileages are also listed in the initial post).

I haven't opened either transmission up - if I had to guess the one with ~90k has never been opened up (it came from a salvaged 540 with that many miles) and the one with 120k that was grinding between 1-2 may have been opened up.

Will not be able to take pictures until Sunday.

What was wrong with the 90k one again? I think I read it in one of the other threads about these, but I can't remember which.

There were some very fine metal shavings in the transmission fluid when I drained it.

Bump for a best offer - both probably have very valuable parts to someone in need and one may be serviceable as is.
