lsd

  1. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    My new-to-me 1987 325e (manual with optional lsd) with 50,000 miles was parked for 15 years 'til 15 months ago (November 2019). The gentleman who revived it from storage did so 100% by the book, draining, flushing and lubricating prior to moving it and turning it over. Runs like thoroughbred...

    My driveway is insanely steep and we got a bit of snow recently while I was away. Nothing gets up this driveway usually, my moms 4 wheel drive truck even slips sometimes when there’s a ton of snow. I was of course driving my rwd 540i and didn’t think maybe I should use an AWD car since there’d...

    Hi Everyone I'm about to replace my differential oil with Castrol 75-140. On the bottle it is recommended for use on BMW LSD's. But before I do this, a question: Did all E36 328i's have LSD's? Reason I'm asking is that my car, immaculate and well looked after with around 200 000km on the...

    Hi Everyone! I have a 89 E30 and recently put a new 4.27, small case LSD into it. I have swapped the differential because the old one was noisy. The "new" one is from a guy, who swears that it has been completely rebuilt with everything fit perfectly (it looks like that, even though I haven't...

    Hi! I want to install Quaife ATB LSD on my 430i automatic but can't be sure of the final drive ratio. Can anyone help me with it? The local BMW dealer told me it's 3.91 while to my understanding, it is the ratio of manual transmission and automatic models should be 2.81. Thanks!

    Are there any comparable kits to the one that SLR makes? http://slrspeed.com/applications/e36/ I know this is a decent kit but I'm not sure of any others that might be available. Just want to get the most bang for your buck. Also, do you think it's more worth it to buy an LSD or just weld the...
  9. Parting Out
    On the hunt for a Z3M 3.23 LSD from a 1998-2000 S52 powered car. Let me know if anyone has one they would like to sell. Prefer local to SoCal since shipping can be a PITA. Thanks, Bimmerod :cool:
  10. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Why guys new to the site just have a few question about my BMW. 1. I'm wanting to code DVD in motion using obd2 cable and NCS expert. Anyone done it? Also is it possible to play any region of DVD or copied DVDs. 2. Wanting to know if anyone has ever put a limited slip into the e65 e66 3. Also...
  11. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Can anyone estimate the torque capacity of the large differential (188mm ring gear OD) used in the 335i MT, 335D etc? I know that's not an easy question to answer because there are many factors to consider. It would be great to hear from anyone with a heavily modified 335i engine, LSD and...
  12. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hello, next summer I want to plan out some modifications for my baby. I should be in the range of $4500 - $6000. I'm just troubled on what will get me the best bang for my buck. Originally I was thinking a full stack of Dinan parts for about 2500 with some left over for wheels and an m3 front...
  13. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    We lease a 2013 135IS Convert. with the 7 speed DCT trans. We will purchase the car at the end of the lease. Question is, can we switch the differential in our car to a LSD? If so, we would like to hear the opinions of the board members as to the benefits being worth the cost? We happen to have...
  14. F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
    Since LSD will be an accessory option on the M235i, any idea what the cost range maybe (I did the search in this forum but came up with nothing) Got production number, just wish I could get space gray not mineral gray

    Hi! I was changing the flanges that are connected to the driveshafts to parts from M5 e34 to make it fit my 540i/6 e39. I did also replace sealings and O-rings from the sides at the diff, but not the C-clips. And the problem is: one of the flange doesent lock completly, it is possible to move...

    OK so if it were possible, because I am almost positive I have a way to do this, who would be interested in having a turn of a knob, no map switching, boost adjuster for their JB4/3? I am going to install on my car and collect data on my laptop shortly.
  18. Suspension and Braking
    I have a 3.23 LSD that I bought from a parted out e36 m3 about a month ago, never got a chance to install it due to my car being involved in an accident yesterday . PM or text me if interested. 2019824552. I would REALLY prefer selling this heavy mother local due to the fact that shipping an...
  19. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I know this has been covered somewhat in previous posts but there are a lot of different answers floating around. I know that this swap involves custom fabrication for mounting the differential and getting the pinion angle right. I have also seen a few different answers to the question regarding...
  20. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Went into work and i put my car on a alignment rack then lifted it off of that. I have a 07 335 and i spun the rear wheels and they both turned the same direction, even when i had someone hold the other wheel. does this mean i have a lsd in my car? Im the second owner btw.
