My Ride: 01 330x-xi
anyone even know what this is costing me? less than a grand. I doubt it can get much cheaper than that i'm not selling the car and buying a rwd. the entire D/T is out of the car and I have a transmission coming from car-parts dot com. The tranny is the most expensive item i bought a whole car for 200 bucks to get the 3:46 diff and drive shaft it also has the front subframe and spindles small update for anyone that is wanting to do this above and beyond the subframe/drivetrain/spindles/control arms you will also need motor mounts and a ground wire must be relocated. You need a 330i oil pan and the oil pump. The ground wire is connected to the passenger side axle housing coming out of the oil pan. If I can keep the xi Oil pan and make it work I will. The XI pan has a capacity of 8 quarts of oil. Thats all for now
