Need one - the 325is version that I've got doesn't mate with my M3 Tranny.

After all that, the thing doesn't fit? Crap.

Seems that they changed the size of the guibo end at some point. I saw a '97 M3 and '98 328 shaft, and they were identical, and bolted right up to my '98 M3 tranny.

Your shaft must have been from an older car.

So - it seems the M3 shaft isn't critical (though the part numbers are different). The main concern when buying a shaft is likely the year, and I'm not sure when BMW changed it.
