aardvark 5 speed kit

Hey everyone

I looked at the 5 speed converion section here, and noticed the aardvark kit compete with everything- I've heard that the driveshaft lengths are not going to be the same from car to car, so there is never going to be a true "bolt in kit"- i'm confused!!! I want this kit for my 1600 rather than piecing everything together (I had to do to this when I was converting my mustang from an automatic to a stick, and it was a hassle!)

Any ideas?

Happy new year!

I tried to save some money by doing the driveshaft and shift assembly cutting locally and it was a nightmare. Dave will sell you the correct parts and will offer all the support you need to get your car rolling. He is one of the Good Guys we '02 owners are lucky to have.

you and sell you just the parts you need should you decide to buy any on your own. I have also read the verbage at the Top End web page about "no 2 drivelines will be the same length, anyone who sells you a pre-fabed kit does'nt know squat about 2002......." This should only be true if the car has been in a substancial collision. In therory, if you measure the additional length difference between the tranny that is going into the car and the one that came out, this should be the length to shorten the new driveline.

how the hell does BMW make one driveline fit all our cars?

I too bought pieces from Dave for my 5-speed conversion. Great guy, great service, fair prices.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
