    I posted some pics yesterday comparing the driveshaft from a 5-speed E28 to the driveshaft currently in my E3 here:

    I put it in early this morning and it was an easy process. I made a couple of adapting brackets from some 1" angle iron and bolted it up and used a later guibo. The test drive was smooth as butter, gone is the low speed shudder when you're accelerating in first gear.

    The adapter:
