What LSD does the E36 4door M have... ? What can it be modded too ?

This sounds interesting... might be a better mod then the HID headlight Excited

It has a type 210 large case 3.23:1 LSD so any type 210 gear sets will fit inside it.

Hi there Gizmo,

Just signed up here to ask for some advice for my E34, 535i. Guys tried to steal it last week and I think they wrecked the diff totally, when I put it in drive or reverse I get no movement, just a grinding from the rear end.

Does the diff seem like the right diagnosis?

Now I've been looking around and Autofever has used replacements for R2500, but the idea of a LSD for less is appealing, can you still do this? What ratio would be best? More acceleration would be cool, but I'm a bit concerned about petrol consumption.

The broken thing was my daily driver too. Sad

Thanks mate, was the second time in 2 weeks they tried too. First time they wrecked my ignition, then I fixed that and they wrecked it again, got the car about 1 km away and wrecked the diff.

How, I don't know.

According to this chart, it's 2,93. No word on it being an LSD, I would assume not, but I'm sure an expert will know more. Wink

I'm assuming mine is 4.27. Does a lower number, eg 3.91, mean the engine is revving higher at a given road speed? Or the opposite?

RE: BMW Differential Tutorial, with pics.
I have an e46 dedicated track car with 3.38 gearing and a Quaife LSD. Looking to change gearing to either 3.73 or 3.91. Is it possible to use the ring and pinion from an older 188 type diff, e.g. the 3.73 from an e34 525 from 1989, or is it necessary to get them from e.g. an e90?

I got a 3.64 from an X3 for a customer. It went into an E46 330i with a quaife and used as a dedicated track car.

No ring and pinion from type 188 or 210 will fit onto the e46 diff.Censored

RE: BMW Differential Tutorial, with pics.
Is it possible to get a 3:15 gear set to mod my E34 540?

The stock 2:93 is way too long, just want to bring the ratio down a little.

Thanks for the quick response! Do I understand you correctly that the internals of the X3 diff fitted in the housing for the e46? In that case, do you know whether all newer internals from 3-series E9X, 1-series E8X, Z4 E85/E86, and X3 E83 will fit in the E46 housing, or will one have to change the entire differential?

RE: BMW Differential Tutorial, with pics.
Hey Gizmo,

This thread rocks your write ups are awsome, I performed a diff swap in my E30 what a bloody mission lol, one of the bolts didnt want to come loose, it ended up being a 2 full days and 2 night job.

I wanted to ask though, with my E36 325i Convertable does it have a LSD or open diff? if its not an LSD would you be able to swap the internals for me to make in an LSD and at what cost?

I also wanted to ask, would you be able to change the ratio of the diff to give me more acceleration?

Thanks

RE: BMW Differential Tutorial, with pics.
Only the e36 M3 had a LS diff, no other E36 got it.

I can build you a custom ratio E36 limited slip diff for R3000. Many ratios to choose from....

RE: BMW Differential Tutorial, with pics.
I would like a ratio thats going to give me the strongest pull away but I don't want it to affect my top speed tooooooooo much, I know you can't have both, but I would be happier with a stronger pull away and slightly less top speed as I don't drive my car at top speed very often, I don't really want to end up in prison lol.
