No, it definitely needs a custom brace if you pair the 260 on an M50. The angle is way too different for the trans mount tabs to handle with just a washer.

If you bend the stock brace on one side and use a spacer on the other side ( we're talking ~2") it works out fine. I'll try to find some pics when I get to a laptop next.

Do it right, find a ZF. Should be possible for well under 500, look around thoroughly, esp parts cars. People with a trans laying around are more likely to charge more.

probably the other way around ... E30 with an M50 will be in A-class, no matter what else you do to it.
