    Not personally mate but TIS gives you more details http://tis.spaghetticoder.org/e46/32...que_converter/

    Think I'd look for a local gearbox or BMW specialist who have done the job before?

    Its easy, remove gearbox and the nuts for the torque coverter are located behind the unit, you just need to move it around to gain access

    I'm like you mate and I'd be concerned about the unknown & haviing never had to remove an autobox but Raffa's obvious has so try google for a guide, I'm sure there'll be one probably on one of the US sites?

    You need t o confirm your gearbox as theres 2 listed on RealOEM, RealOEM.com * Diagram Selection
    Harry Fairbairn will be able to source the correct one for you if you supply them with your vin no..

    the alternative to removing the gearbox is to remove the engine
    torque converter is going to be very very expensive to buy a new one, I would buy second hand from a reputable specialist breaker
    gearbox removal is easy enough if you got access to a ramp but auto boxes are as heavy as hell so you WILL need help getting it out/in.
    I doubt you'll see any change from a grand for parts and labour at a garage
