The only difference between the years is the belt and by belt i don't mean size. I mean 08 is single sided ridges and 09 plus is double sided ridge. the easy way to do this is look under the hood if you see ridges then it is double sided. It is my assumption that you are not near the car. So PM someone from AA and they will tell you the belt sizes they use.
That helps tremendously. Thank you. So basically, from what I understand from your explantation, is that the belts are not different in length, but in type--either single side ridges or double sided? That makes it easier..thank you.

Who on the forum can I PM from AA? Can I search for the vendor/member?

Thanks!

Mike

that's what i've been told. You can PM Andrew from AA. Just search for Active Autowerke and their name will pop up.

Pics of Pulley Belts: Correct for 2008 6mt?

I have attached pics of my pulley and its belts, hope someone can chime in. These are single sided belts (correct?), and these would work for a pre 5/08 e92 m3 with a 6 speed wouldn't it? The reason I ask is because I acquired it from someone who had it on his 2009 DCT...

Pics of pulley I acquired:


Yes the pulleys are the same for each brand. Ex: AA pulley is the same for the entire model production only the belts have been changed. I suggest calling tms to find out the belt sizes they use. Also it wasnt so much as a difference in belt size but a difference in belt itself. Older models have single sided belts while newer models have double sided belts
Don't the active autowerke pulley use one belt?

Anyone else have any insight as to whether or not these belts will work with the pulley for a car produced after 7/08?
