    E36 compact 328ti

    prehaps i wasnt clear. if you use a Z3 one you will not have to change your drive shaft or half shafts. you should already be using E36 stuff so will just bolt in and good to go. If you fit an E30 diff you need to change the input and output flanges of the diff so it uses E36 parts. by the way. i forgot to mention that you need to given the body a bit of a tweak with a small club hammer on the reinforcement box section that crosses behind the diff to make room for the breather. doesnt have to much, 5mm was all i did on mine

    depends what gearbox you are using as to what ratio is good. I have a 3.4 in my E30 which is short for the ZF gearbox but its not a road car. Z3 have the same output input and output flanges as E36 so it all bolts in, wheras E30 you need to change the output shafts. What drive shaft are you using if it is the 328i one then E36 input shaft on diff. E30 one looks similar but different Beware of the Z3 LSDs, they are not viscous type, might be fine for a road car but they are non-rebuildable and cant be tightened up like the E30 ones. My Diff is all Z3 except with an E30 viscous center rebuilt and an extra clutchpack installed. hope this helps

    while yes there are some variation in quality of tool/software, the biggest variable is the brain on the operator.

    Most of you have probably seen my BMBBQ. Thats not me in the pic, usually my mates that come round don't want food poisoning so leave it up to them.

    Recommend Wellington Service

    correct as far as late model stuff goes, and even then, probably little experience with the newer models ? Why are you not willing to take it to the dealer ?

    Tow Vehicle

    ill never forget being in my dads mates V10 TDI toureg many moons ago when it was nearly new. had what i remember to be a 40 series Cruiser based off roader on trailer on the back. lights went green at the Haywards lights (back when there were such) and 5 up in the toureg we dragged off a 4/5/6 Evo (i remember the triangle lights) which at the time was crash hot to a young impressionable teen such as my self. so although they have the wrong badge on the front, they do alright by me.
