Exclamation Help por favor!

Hey guys, I'm gonna swap in a 5 speed tranny in my 01 330ci during spring break. I had a question though. Im swapping in a 250g from a 04 325ci and i was wondering what drive shaft i would need for this to work? Would i get the driveshaft realoem says is for my car. Or would i get a driveshaft that realoem says would fit the 04 325? TIA and any advice is much appreciated!

-Henry

250G is a 325 trans and has a lower torque rating than your 330i transmission - You can do it, but I'd try to find the right transmission so you don't have to go through the process of finding a new driveshaft and shifter etc.

I like your spanglish! Good luck with the swap, please post an update, at some point I plan to do this, too.
Here are some links on the swap.

Ahh okay thank you! I found the right trans, trying to find the a 330 manual drive shaft at the moment.
