Quaiffe Differential in Z3 M Coupe?

I have bad diff chatter and pretty much isolated it to the clutch pak. The subframe is perfect. Ireland bushings installed. New clutch, tranny mounts, etc.

Can I upgrade/replace the clutch pack guts--or do the Quaiffe--assuming there is a fitment.

I love the Quaiffe on my old GTI and it is bulletproof.

SO: IS there a fitment? Best source? Anything else I should know?

Thanks!

Not sure about the availability of the Quaiffe, but your rear diff is not that difficult to rebuild. Chances are by now, it is running as an open diff as the clutches are worn out. Here is where to get replacement or upgraded parts for your diff. There are videos giving step by step instructions.
