I'm not so sure. There was another one for sale on Craigslist that was a 6 speed manual. I think it was also prefacelift, so maybe we could only get a manual 540iT before 2001.

You're correct. The shaft on the manual axle is 38mm, 32mm for the auto. I guess I could just replace both and sell the other side. Or look for a used manual axle. Might take a while though.
