you mean e30/36 guys can get a used random mystery lsd for $300. then spend $300+ in parts and 300+ in labor (or time) to rebuild it.

so = $900 in good diff for a $500 e30.......or $1500 e36. Not a very good equation at all! but worth it.

I race a E30, know all about this silly game.
Definitely shows up in lap time when its done right vs not done correctly (using random junkyard diffs that like to give up)

if one wants a $free solution and can handle some wheel hop (and potential axel failure) then welding the OEM open diff is actually not a bad option. cost $0 also

Wavertrack is popular with e90 crowd; many 335's run around with it. Looks nice although I'm not sure how good they are for lap time - I much prefer tracking with a clutch type LSD; its the general consensus among those after lap time.
