R42 RWD axle

This might be a dumb question, but is a R42 and M3 real axle interchangeable?

I have an '84 M3 with RWA.
Looking at a '99 R42 thats 2WD and not sure I want too go without the RWA.

Thanks in advance

Brad

Brad pretty sure the rwd axle in M3 is out of R50 or N6. I found out the rwd in my R52 is from aR50. Should work. That 42 looks good. Murray

Look up the part # of the retaining ring on the pivot tube of each axle assy. If the same ring is used then its likely just a matter of drilling a new hole for the retaining bolt and lengthening /shortening the tube. That's all that was involved in adapting a R series assembly to my N-6

Forgot to mention I still have complete axle with wheels for the M3 if you need. Murray

Thanks guys

Now I have too decide if I want to buy it or not. Its a super clean machine.
Hard to believe there isn't more interested. Maybe too small for most.
