Driveshaft problem

The driveshaft in my 318i is damaged and got it dismounted. I saw it was bent in a section, so now i need a new one. Is there by any chance i can swap a driveshaft from a 325 into a 318 ? Thank you.

I dont believe you can. They use two seperate and different transmissions so I believe the lenths are different.
