I don't know if it's required, but that's pretty ridiculous.. I bought a 3.46 diff on ebay and had it installed at my local independent mechanic for less than that! That included swapping the input shafts too.

Does any one know if you must remove the rear differential from a 2000 328i inorder to replace the cover? it is at the shop right now and they are saying 560 bucks to fix it.
FYI, the cover gasket is not available by BMW anymore. They say just use a liberal amount of form a gasket goo and youre all good. I think all the bolts are readily accessible without removing anything if memory serves. I'd tell that shop to stop smoking crack! :mad:
