    My mate is selling an e36 3.2 m3 evo rear axle for dirt cheap, its pretty much complete, lsd diff, carrier, rear trailing arms driveshafts etc, my question is what else do i need to do this conversion, i understand as the 3.2 is a six speed my prop will be too long? any way around this? im sure all the diff carrier mounts will be the same, thanks for your help by the way the car is a 94 325 tds, pretty much the same as petrol 6 cyl rear axles

    As the ev is a 6 speed, the prop will be too short (more gearbox, less prop)
    It'll bolt up fine, but you'll probably need to get a prop made up from the front and rear of a tds and an M3 version.

    Check the flanges too evo has 6 bolt but i think eveything else has 4 bolt.
    A 3.0 m3 prop may fit to the 5 speed box (thats what i used When I got the conversion done on me 328i) but on the tds... might have to get some kind of hybrid mutant


    Also think about the final drive... your talking 2.65 (I think on the tds) to 3.23 on the evo diff... Your prob talking bout 3500 revs at 60 on 5th... Could be fun tho!

    One last thing with the torque a diesel puts out you would want to reinforce the diff carrier mountings, about £60 for 4 plates you can get from BMW and they weld in... you might never need it but its a 'while you are at it' mod
