240 trans swap

I purchased an automatic 2017 M240i in October of last year and after driving it for almost a year now I've decided I want a manual. I've searched the web for a manual coupe with some success, however I'm not convinced that I could find another one with the LSD which would be the only way to justify a slightly higher price than I paid. I'm now considering swapping the gs6-45bz, which came in the manuals, however I'm having trouble finding any out of a 240 and I'm not sure how they line up between models. I also have not yet found anything on anybody doing this before. Does anybody have any experience or knowledge to help me understand this a bit better.

There is a thread here somewhere from some who got a manual swap working mechanically and "mostly" electronically. Will see if I can find it.

Edit: Google found it easier than site search. Just sayin.

Thank you
I am still having some trouble finding a transmission for the b58. However, I am assuming that the N55 and S55 manual transmissions are the same with the same bolt patterns as that of the b58. Is anyone aware of any differences?
