hi guys
i am looking into getting a lsd for my e36 318ti being a compact and having a different rear end to the rest of the e36 family
i am getting conflicting stories of what has what in it if that makes sense lol

firstly id like to comfirm that my car has a 3.4 ratio diff ??

also id like to know what has the 3.7 ratio fitted (i.e. e28 ect)

i have been offered a e36 m3 evo diff but i have been told it has a 3.2 ratio which if true would kill the acceleration and i would need to change the casing too

any advise is welcome

thanks ronnie must of missed that 1 wile looking though the results lol so id be looking at a mediume case diff. do u no the ratio's of the Zm cars ? or infact the other avalible diff that fit ? i know u mentioned the e28 having a3.45 but what model can that be found in?

i feel that a higher ratio in the ti would make no end of diffrence to its drivabilaty,making it more suited to the nice tight twisty toads in the uk :D
