E46 M3 SMG to Manual Conversion

As well regarded BMW M-power specialists who have vast knowledge and experience with the E46 M3 platform, we are able to offer an OEM class of SMG-to-Manual Conversion which is almost undetectable for most people.

(This page will be updated in detail as well as a video explaining the process).

Our conversions use Genuine BMW Parts and include all the mechanical and electrical (including coding) work, and are totally reversible should you one day want to go back to SMG.

In our conversions we even go to the extent of replacing the Instrument Cluster and Inlet Manifold to further enhance the OEM appearance of how a factory E46 M3 manual presents.

This work takes 1 week.

Our price is £3500. including VAT.

To make a booking with us, we require a £500 deposit.

A side note on general SMG issues:

If you have issues with your SMG Gearbox/Clutch system, you are wise to consider an SMG-to-Manual Conversion from the offset.

This is because the labour costs involved with ongoing and sometimes open-ended diagnosing SMG issues, and then the eye-watering prices of the many different BMW SMG Parts can easily 'run away' and before you know it become an unviable repair.

In very complex cases they require lots of electrical & mechanical diagnosis labour, and then (for example) a new BMW SMG Pump Assembly part cost can easily become more expensive than converting to a Manual transmission in the first place.

We don't aim to discourage SMG owners away from repairing SMG vehicles (James Redish himself has an E46 M3 SMG in his collection), but merely be open and honest to help you make informed decisions.

SMG transmissions can sometimes be very costly to fix and rather than sticking with that mode of transmission, the option of a conversion should be seriously considered.
