    well if im honest im not entirely sure, im led to believe that the e36 diffs are all the same (size wise) apart from the internals? so maybe something from an m3 or a 328 maybe? whats your thoughts?

    m3 diff will give you shorter gearing, make it a little quicker but will also make it more thirsty, but then if your fitting a lsd i doubt your bothered about economy, not sure about the differences in gearing from the 325 to 328 tho, im going to guess the 325td has a taller diff to aid with fuel economy?
    *edit* 328 dosnt have lsd so forget that one, i think the older 328isport might have actually, ill do a bit of research and get back to you

    right bit of research tells me that the 325 and m3 uses a shorter 3.15.1 ratio whereas the 323 and 328 uses a 2.92.1 ratio wich is taller
