My Ride: is schwartzed out
WTT or WTB for 2.93/3.07/3.15 Differential

I've got a 3.46 differential to trade from a 328Ci...

It was reported that before I got my car, the diff fluid was changed at 30K intervals up to 90K, which is when I got it...

Of course, I didn't want to take the guy's word on it, since he wasn't a forum member... Thus, I've gone a little nutty, and changed my diff fluid at 5K intervals with Redline, whenever I changed my engine oil (I figured I had the car up anyway, so it wouldn't hurt to change it)... I've got 141K on the drive train now, and thankfully, it's treated me as well as I've tried to treat it!

I'd like to swap it for either a 2.93, 3.07, or 3.15 differential... I've personally never been all that interested in beating on my car, so I generally baby the throttle at all times... It'd be better for me to get a few extra MPG from a lower ratio diff for all my long distance highway travel.

I'm located just outside of Trenton, NJ... I'm willing to travel around 300 or so miles round-trip to make any exchanges. Would like to keep the costs on this somewhat reasonable, and if anyone still has a diff that's on there car, and needs to have it removed to swap, I've got a really good, and inexpensive indy shop/M3 owner who'll hook us up.

The sooner we can do this, the better... Hopefully within the next couple weeks... I've got to make a cross country trip out to Oregon, and would love to take care of this beforehand...
