I don't think there's a difference between the 01 and 05 rear end. Maybe the price difference is because of mileage and just because ones older.

Does your car have a manual transmission? If so, 5 or 6 speed? 5 speed will require a custom driveshaft (shortened), 6 speed will require the use of an M3 driveshaft. I don't know what driveshaft is used for auto or SMG transmissions.

You'll need to have your 5 speed drive shaft shortened.

This guy has a 5 speed 330 and did the M3 rear swap - http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...r+end+swap+lsd
