    Hi bimmersforums. I'm wondering if I weld the diff in my e39 540i steptronic will it kill the box? Obviously it won't be good for it but is it likely to immediately die or go into limp mode? Before you all start I've had plenty of cars with welded diff and am fully aware of all the negative...

    I asked this question on the drifting section but nobody wanted to answer, I am posting it here in the general section under the heading of legality and safety. By welding the diff you are going to make your car handle such that the handling will be severley compromised, yes I've heard all the...
