    Anyone any ideas as to wot sort of diff would fit my car? Ive seen a diy guide for a 318ti but none for a 316ti. Im not looking to drastically change the ratio just adjuust it slightly for acceleration. Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

    I wouldn't do it mate, too much hassle for very little gain plus it'll be screaming its nuts off when you hit the motorway
