    im looking into putting a 3.23 diff on my e36 328i in my understanding the diff off the m3 will fit direct and give me lsd aswell on my quest to find a diff i came across a 3.23 diff off a compact for a damn sight less ive searched many forums and came up with nothing even google didnt have the answer (GOOGLE) WTF so im hoping theres a boffin or 2 that can tell me is it the same diff im sure it will fit being that the compact is the same car with the same wheel base minus a boot but does it have lsd and if so why is it 250 quid cheaper

    unfortunately the compact uses the same rear suspension as the E30 3 series so the diff will not fit into an E36 as far as i know
    the E36 M3 LSDs are 3.15 ratio which is shorter than the 328i's differential so you will get better acceleration from it, expect to pay aroud £300 for a good used one
