I can see two parts listed on pelican windshield seal and windshield moulding.

Also has anyone used the 'uro' brand parts successfully?

so many different opinions, diff compatibility

Is it a straight swap between small and medium case e30 diffs

Can any e36 diff be swapped, apparently the e36 3i8ti is the same, but others say it isn't?
