The drive shaft was just shortened and balanced by a shop. Maybe if you get really lucky the dealership will leave a lice infested one in your trunk.
dont get nasty mister. i didn't make fun of you or even made fun of your nappy hair. anywho....thank you for answering the drive shaft question. how much is the labor on getting the drive shaft shorten and balanced?

btw..is there any other other solution other than getting it shorten (ie. Z4M)?

umad. Right, we'll just ignore that shot at my fake m3. I thought it was like 200-300, but I might have been pulling that out of thin air.

Yes, but it depends on your tranny. I think with certain combinations you can work around it. Best to wait for Kalim to chime in on this though

Still seems completely backwards to take a working E46 M3 and make a working hybrid 325i with a S54...
He bought it specifically as a donor car, as it had all the random odds and ends he needed. He put his S54 motor in it so he could get it running and make sure there were no problems(with the engine).

The m3 runs... but it is no means a desirable car . It's a means to an end.

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

it took him over 2 years to get this far, so my guess would be another 2 years.
