Check the driveshaft- heck, it MIGHT work. The E46 shell is a minor evolution of the E36.
It comes apart in the middle, so you can change the support bearing.

Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

I always fell asleep before I could get that 'close to the edge' with pot. White powder, now, that caused lots of problems...

Long day. ..we went and got the ZF transmission and the 2 part drive shaft too. We lucked out and got what appears to be a nice aftermarket clutch. Dirty job .. But w got transmission for 99.00 and 2 part shaft for 50.00. Thats a good deal isnt it??. ***x263a;***xfe0f;

Sounds like a good deal. Make sure to matchmark the opposite halves of driveshaft before separating for any reason. It's best to mark a particular spline to the other half, since they are not keyed and can develop vibrations/balance issues if not put back the same.

Fyi, can't see any pictures above
