I'm taking (a little) credit. I met Tim330i at the track this year and i've been pestering him ever since.

SalM 10-21-2010 05:11 PM

Oh Yeahhh Xi Yeahh!

Mark M 10-22-2010 10:54 AM

Great work Kubica! Thanks for the continued pesting. Glad we have our own little neighborhood now!

So how did the diff swap go? Still planning a 6 speed swap too?

As for mine, Ehhh...it is just my daily driver...I decided against any big mods. Instead, I splurged and picked up a '02 M3 as a fun car to mod!

wdeerfield 10-22-2010 10:57 AM

nice pick up!

i drive by a white e36 M3 sedan on the way to work in the am.. just waiting for the forsale sign to go up!

Yeah I finished the double diff swap about 10 months ago. It's been perfect to be honest. I love the extra acceleration and gas mileage hasn't really taken a big hit either.

I'm still planning a 6 speed swap for the future when my clutch goes eventually. I know there was another forum member from Norway who pulled one off, but he needed a new TC also. So my thinking goes, if I was putting in a new 6 speed tranny and TC, why not throw a 3.0L motor in there at the same time, right? But then common sense says just save up for an M3 like Mark M. Feel me?

Thank you for this forum. Wondering if anyone caught this Podcast on BimmerFile. I know I am preaching to the choir, but what are your thoughts?

I went from 3.23 to 3.46 ratio. They were pulled from a wrecked automatic xi with only 40k miles.

To do the front, remove both axles, drop the front subframe (with motor supported of course), and that puppy slides right out after you disconnect the driveshaft.

TX_Bullet 10-23-2010 06:40 AM

dam its lost hope for me then cause i have an auto xi not sure what car i could get that front diff from
