Differential Upgrade

I am considering a diff upgrade to a 3.23. I currently have a 2.93 final drive on my new 330i (6 speed manual tranny). For anyone who has upgraded their 330i final drive, I notice that Dinan offers 3.15. They content that higher ratio's may cause problems with DSC and/or ADB. There is a concern that traction control will get confused with shorter final drive. Anyone have problems with on board computer or DSC associates with differential upgrades?

Actually, the "performance package" comes with a 3.07 rear end. I guess that's one of the way's they get the 0-60 time down a half sec.
Roose - Like the sig quote.
Here's one from www.protestwarrior.com (check it out - very funny story about the SF rally):

"War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

-- John Stuart Mill

PS - I'd like a lsd, but it soes seem unlikely. There's a lot of fans, but getting people on the field is tough.
