E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Anyone make an LSD for 1 series?

I figured diffsonline offered one, but they don't. Is there another shop that will build an LSD for a 135i?

I assume the LSD from the 1M will not fit, if it's sourced from the M3.

$3000 + 3.5 hrs labor ($500?). Thanks - expensive but at least it's possible.

Surprised that Dinan doesn't offer the LSD for the E46.

HPA (and a lot of other vendors) carries both Quaife and Wavetrack, if you have a manual it's probably easier to just buy a new pumpkin since they have to machine the ring gear off.

There are a few clutch type lsds as well, like the OS Giken if you want to go that route.

Mine too. Wife gave me the greenlight for pretty much anything and is encouraging me to find the most aggressive car I can that will still seat the family...at one she brought up a 911 and an M5. I'm not willing to shell out that kinda money.

Short list:

ZHP (tough to find a good one that's low on miles and in good shape at a price that is reasonable)
1 series (NA, turbo...not sure gotta try em)
M3 e90 (haven't loved my past two e90s though)
2013 WRX (gotta have a better interior than last gen though)
Golf R
BRZ

That's just what's striking me right now.
