Worth it

Highly recommend this!!! I installed the whole m3 rear subframe with everything since I got it for around 1300$. Hands down the best idea for what our cars need with fbo. Wish i saw this pdf before i tackled it last month.

i wonder if you got an m3 manual driveshaft if it would have to be shortened. from realoem the difference between the two is 23mm, from your drawing it is 30mm, thats only about 1/4" difference.
