Bite the bullet and call Dan at They are in Mass, but ship. He will build, or rebuild a diff to whatever specss you want. Be warned, it's not going to be cheap.

Another option is Matrix Motorsprots, Look on Ebaymotors under e36 M3 diff. I'd go for the 3.46:1 40% lockup, polished gearset, when my 3.38 dies. Last time I looked, it was $1000 or so.
No matter where you go, there you are.
