Maybe your letting off the clutch to much. I'm sorry but I barley understand what you are asking. As an answer to your last question, if you want a racing differential, it's called an LSD which i would NOT recommend putting on a 323i. However if you want to do it, by all means do it. Also it will cost you $2000. Or you could just upgrade your current differential to a 3.38 or 3.46.

You need to define "shake" There's all sorts and kinds.

If you mean the shake where it makes the passenger's head (if applicable) tilts forward and back, then it could be the way you're shifting.

It's really easy; alter the way you release the clutch and see if the symptoms still exist.

With that said, the shake described above usually and almost only happens from 1st to 2nd. If you're experiencing that at higher gear then there's issues.

Again, there's nothing to work with but "shake"

THANKS, when i bought the car everything was ok, no issues while or when shifting, for sure is not the way im using the clutch, for example when the car its on ( just on, no driving) and i shift 1 and just release the clutch the shake begins strong strong, and it usually didnt happen when i bought the car.

all this issues begun when i ran the car until 6 rpm ( 1 line before the red) and then 2 til 6 rpm , since that the car shakes in the back or rear in the middle.

thanks for your help.

If guibo is not the problem, then live with it. No need to rev that high anyway.
