Does anyone know the driveshaft length difference between the i6 and v8?

And does anyone know the bolt pattern from driveshaft to trans on both

And does anyone know if an m5 lsd or e38 lsd will fit a 2000 528it (wagon) rear subframe?

Specs and measurements needed thanks

Any help is greatly appreciated thanks!

The 540 and M5 tailshaft is thicker.
The flange at the input side of the diff is larger for the 540 and M5, and the axle output flanges too are larger.
The M5 tailshaft has a shorter rear section than the open diff versions as it is longer at the front of the diff.
The manual tailshaft is slightly longer than the auto one at the front section.
The guibo fitting is the same size.
