Arrow 6 speed transmission?

Is there a 6 speed tran that will fit into a 95 318ti? I would like to convert up one more gear if possible...

The 6 speed from a euro M3 will fit, and add a .86:1 overdrive. It'll cost a few grand though, and you might need a new driveshaft.

Is the Euro M3 driveshaft the proper length?

You do need the 6 speed driveshaft, however, it may end up being cheaper to modify the ti one.

How would a euro M3 driveshaft fit a Ti? Wouldn't it be a few inches longer?

It will fit fine if used with the matching 6 speed Euro tranny, only the differential flange needs to be swapped.
