I didn't see any seepage from the front or sides, as always i would recommend doing the rear diff cover only b/c you would already have it out of the car and its really easy to do.

This came off of a 535i 5speed with 130k miles, however, the 535i 5speed came stock with the 3.46 rear, so someone swapped this into their ride before I pulled it.

Yeah, i had a custom drive shaft made for my 540i. The front half is the 540i portion and the rear half is the standard, 525/535 portion so i can put in almost any rear end ration i want now at this point. Its nice since the large case diffs come in limited gear options and they go for crazy $$$.
