A Getrag 265 transmission will fit with no modifications to the driveshaft. You will need the transmission, bellhousing, shift tower, shifter, shift linkage, transmission mounts and crossmember from a E28 535i to make it work. Some 535i's had the Getrag 260 transmission, you do not want this transmission. The 265 has a separate bellhousing, the 260 bellhousing is part of the case of the tranny. The 265 was used on a number of cars and I think that you can use any of them, you just need the associated bits from the 535i.
