My Ride: BMW e46 330i
BMW e46 330i Driveshaft question


I recently bought my first BMW and got very low knowledge about BMWs in general hence why I am here

I just bought a differential from an automatic with the ratio 3,73 and mounted it onto my BMW. Now i need to make my driveshaft just a tiny bit longer and im quite confused. From what i understand you can make the driveshaft longer by loosening some kind of nut on every driveshaft but i cant seem to find it on my 330i:s driveshaft?
(perfect picture demonstrating my question: http://www.bokchoys.com/differential...ive_shaft2.jpg

So my questions to you guys are:
Is the 330i:s driveshaft different compared to other e46s?
How do i (if possible) make my stock e46 330i:s driveshaft longer?

Thank you and sorry if this made you facepalm _a_
