    Hi all, looking to buy an M135i for daily use & track days. A mechanical clutch plate LSD is essential for me. I understand its possible for any bmw dealership to provide and install an M performance LSD to f20/f21 m135i’s? Can anyone confirm this? And has anyone done this modification?

    Hey all, I've been looking around for a few weeks now at the lsd options for my is coupe. I am curious to hear your opinions on the best way to go about it. I can; 1) Find a small case lsd which seem to be like hens teeth from a 4 cylinder or 320 6 cylinder e36. 2) Fit a medium case which is...

    Hi All, need some help to get this right or if this is ok already. I have an E36 with an EVO swapped over. I initially installed a 3.0L M3 engine with a 5 speed manual trans and 3.15 LSD. But the 3.0L had some issue so I swapped in an EVO engine. Everything is working fine but i am not feeling...

    Hi all. I'm after a 3.15 LSD. I was wondering if you good fellows might help me find one as I'm a bit concerned about getting the right one. Timm's is from a 750i but I'm sure I read that M5 ones work too. Could any one list the possible doners. If anyone knows of one for sale I would appreciate...

    Is there a cheaper option than the £1k Quaife LSD for the 320d? I'd really like to take the car skidding but the open diff doesn't help with that :(. I've thought of having the diff welded, but the car is a daily and I do about 40 miles a day and don't want it to be annoying/too dangerous. Do...

    Hi Everyone, Just picked up an E36 328i Sport Coupe which is the non-LSD model. I want to try and get hold of an LSD for the car for track day purposes. Does anyone have any tips of where to look? The ones on ebay seem so over priced. Many thanks.

    Hi All, I've been doing a bit of research regarding my '01 325Ci and I am a bit lost regarding limited slip diffs in the context of drifting. If I read up correctly, helical LSDs are out as they don't lock, they bias the torque to the wheel with more grip. Correct me please if I am wrong on...

    Hi guys, I have bought an M3 3.15 medium case lsd diff, I'm going to buy another subframe and arm assembly and modify it to fit my diff to, my question is, if I source a subframe from a Z3 2.8, is it any stronger than a standard compact, would the drive shafts fit the output flanges, are the...

    Hello there, I'm guessing my car doesn't have an LSD as standard. I was thinking of looking for one but wasn't sure whether it would fit and whether its really necessary? Did any form of 318iS get an LSD? I know certain 328i sports had them but my car has a smaller diff case so I couldn't do...

    Had the usual input seal leak and also a driveshaft seal leak from the diff, as I also had a blow from the exhaust that came off which made the job possible but I`m not sure I could have done it on ramps etc. pretty straightforward despite having been given the wrong output seal be the...
