It turns out that the diff I ordered will only easily fit a 325ti model, so have returned the diff and paid an additional 70 for a 3.38 item. so there will be no acceleration loss after all, but another 48 hours wasted!
i've only had the car since april, so can't say for sure if the diff lube was ever changed or looked after, but this is something i will be rigorous with myself now. but so far including the springs being changed at the sametime (could have done myself really) this episode is costing nearly 500!. but hey, these cars are worth spending on
