Mein Auto: 318is E30
help needed from Ireland

hi sorry im new to this but ive tried to search the posts already but couldnt find anything.... i recently bought a rear subframe out of a m3 evo, and put it into my E36 318is but i didnt get the propshaft in the deal.
what im wondering is will the rear section of an m3 evo propshaft fit into the propshaft coming out of the 318 gearbox? the m3 evo prop is 2" shorter from the carrier bearing to the differential compared to the 318is prop
thanks in advance to any help

I wish I could tell you yes or no with confidence, but the fact is I have no idea. We didn't get the Evo here, so most of us aren't well versed in the particulars of that model. When you find out, could you post back what you learned?

thanks for replying anyways :-) but i found a propshaft on the net and rang the seller who's actually a breakers yard specialising in breaking bmws. I asked could he just give me a measurement of the sliding joint and his response was 'we dont separate parts'
i dont think it will after that response!
