Yeah, but the Getrag that came on E36s has the same ratios as the ZF.

Lmao, I keep looking at your guys cars and realizing how out of place the kit and OPH's look on my car.

I still love it, but I want it cleaner like a bimmer should be.

With time. Keep up the good work and entertainment

Hi all,

I've taken a few more pics of my car (because the weather was nice for the first time in ages!!) but I don't want them to be thumbnails in my post which need to be clicked on to be enlarged, I just want them to be shown like all of the other ones in here. I apologise for my technological retardation as the solution is most probably looking at me right now but I can't see it! Any help would be appreciated!

Cheers, DB.

Make an account on a photo hosting site like photobucket, then upload your pics to that site. Then, use the image code (copy and paste it into your post) to add your larger pics.

If by 'diff' you mean the lump of iron and aluminum at the front of your drivetrain, then yes Joe, by all means replace it

Give Lola the heart she deserves!

This. Or if you prefer, just go with one picture at a time (per upload that is) then just use a site like http://www.tinypic.com.
