Thanks! Is there a difference in length for an auto/manual 540i shaft?
I have a 335i 6 MT, would I need a 540i MT or A/T shaft (or it doesn't matter as either one has to be modified to suit anyway?)
Also is it worth replacing the flex joint if the driveshaft comes with one, or to buy a new replacement for a E92 M3 or a 540i?
