Default CV joint interchange

Hey gang,
Playing with an idea. Got a lead on a BMW 328i rear differential. Anyone know if a T1, T2 or 930 CV would bolt up to it? Thanks!
Jeff

True, but I'm not sure if they have the right gear ratio. 2.93:1 I need a shorter housing too. Maybe a Honda CRV?

I'm sure you're aware of this, but here are all the CV styles and measurements related to typical VW projects.

Maybe this will have some help:

Thanks MK, I'll contact the BMW guy. As for BCR, I have a set of their 2x3 trailing arms. Nice stuff. Fun website.

It is the same as the T4 VW bus or VW Thing 181.
