E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Thank you all for your input! I am glad to count on experience E30 owners and get your opinions
I have another question though (sorry)...

Will the 4.10 LSD be a direct swap for the LSD that comes with the M20B27????

Thank you!

Or would the 3.25 LSD or perhaps a 3:46 LSD be a better fit???

Re: Just brought home an E30 325es

The 3.46 is a good compromise. A 4.10 is going to have you winding the engine pretty high just running normal freeway speed.

Sorry I've been busy with other people's cars till yesterday then I got back to working on mine and it sent me back here.So since your hunting rears I'm guessing she got you? It's OK they grow on you quickly .What are you planning to do with the car, I mean if your just going to take the car out for drives in the country or autocross the 4:10 is your choice otherwise you probably have a 3:46 in the car ,I know some of the info out there says after 12/86 but check the # on your car to see what is there since your's is an ES and close to the transission to a different gearing in E's.
