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.

Some of them did. One of our forum members near me in Jacksonville had a 540iT manual. It was a 1999 though.

Not pics of my car, but I used the 'ol 530i this past Thursday as a camera car for my friend to get some shots of the Gumball 3000 cars coming through Florida. Here's some I took on my phone.

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.
