  1. E46 XI
    Hello, I recently purchased a 2005 325xi. I needed a car to move to alaska with and I found this one with less than 150k on it for $3k. Immaculate interior, no dents or rust, no lights on the dash(besides washer fluid level). I was especially happy to find this car because I had had an E39 in...

    I’m from Australia. Happy to pay freight or shipping. Looking for complete hub to hub rear subframe and working diff.

    Yeah I know, it’s another diff question I’m sorry guys. I’ve been doing a little bit of searching and I’ve seen lots (and lots and lots and lots) of discussion about the practicality of using the 3.46 diff and whether or not it’s ratio is too short to be useable for daily driving, but that’s not...

    So I’m trying to figure out what diff I should go with for drifting. I currently have the stock 3.15 ratio welded up and it works but I was wondering if a 3.46 would be a huge performance boost for drifting. The events around me are kinda all over the place. I’ve been to one that seems like a...

    Hi all! I have just acquired my e46 323i manual convertible and starting my drift build, so far I have found so much useful info here and was hoping to get some specific help on the diff. so, if I’m right I have a 3.07 ratio medium case (188) diff? I want to get a shorter ratio to get more...

    I’m looking to get a LSD for my 320ci. It says it has a 188k and I just want to be positive it will fit. I’m looking at getting this one that I will link. Thanks http://www.mattlewisracing.co.uk/product.php/2899/1197/limited_slip_differential_bmw_1_3_series

    How does the E46 open diff work?
  8. E46 General
    Hi guys.. Got a big knock sound (and jolt felt) when shifting from Drive into Reverse and vice versa. Just had the Diff mount changed which was on its way out but the issue remains unchanged. Got told there is a bit of backlash in the diff and an oil change might help. Any experience of this...

    Recently did some work to my diff including replacing the halfshaft/output seals. After a while I noticed they were both leaking but I can't figure out why. When installing them I used a bit of diff oil as lube and just slowly hammered them into place with a mallet and blunt piece of metal. Only...

    Hello, I have an e46 touring project and I need some info. I wanna push 600 hp out of an m52 and I know the rear ends fail, so I was gonna do an m3 full rear end swap as well as reinforcement plates. Does anyone know if the rear end swap will affect my compatibility with my coil-overs or will I...

    Introduction: I found this kit while looking online for an inexpensive limited slip diff solution in my 330i. The kit consists of 2 metal plates with springs in between them which push out on clutch plates that contact the side gears in the carrier of the diff. There is a hole formed by the...

    Hello! I recently did a big repair on my 2003 320D e46, changing all rear bushings, wheel bearings, handbrake repair, and got it aligned. However, now there is a cluck every time I change gear, specifically when I release the clutch pedal. I have done nothing to the diff other than removing...

    I'm swapping my stock ZHP diff with a 3.46 diff from a 325i. I need to swap the input flanges but neither my craftsman nor gearwrench 30mm socket will fit around the nut on the pinion shaft. Any suggestions? How has anyone else here done it?

    Hello everyone, The Differential in my 2002 325ci manual 5 speed is on its way out. I am having trouble finding out the ratio that I have. Will a diff from an automatic 325ci work or will the ratios be too short. Any help would be appreciated

    2000 323i 5speed 170,000km Today I did spark plugs (NGK) and Diff Fluid (Redline) and threw in a magnaflow resonator. Here is an album http://imgur.com/a/GsEBT The Diff Fluid: I drained the fluid, only about 1 liter came out, there was no metal shavings, but the fluid was dark. It was still...

    I've had my car about a year now, and it's always made this humming noise in first gear, but it was bothering me more than usual the other night, so I thought I'd take a video of it and see if it's normal. A few friends of mine that have e36's say it's totally normal, but their cars don't do...
