TRADE: My 3.46 Diff for your 3.23 or possibly a 3.15!

My car is going to breathe a little easier by FRI so I need to hold boost longer in each gear. I havent decided if the 3.46 will be ok for boost, but I want to start setting up a deal for a 3.23 which would be the ideal setup I think. If noone has a 3.23, I may settle for a 3.15, however I prefer it to be someone local in South Florida!

please email me or post.

the only E46 that comes with a 3.23 is a stick 325xi. that's going to be really hard to find.

You'll have a much easier time finding a 3.15 from a 325i.

Well I may just kick down back to a 3.15 or a 3.38 worst case scenario.

3.46 is just a lil bit too agressive.

I really want the 3.23 tho....i wonder how much it costs form bmw directly.

I dunno? I know that manual 323ci's convertables had 3.46. I think you have a 3.15.

I'm interested in a trade.... (3.15) but I wouldn't be able to not have my car for any amount of time. so, if you would want to send yours and then i send you mine after install (same day or day after I receive it) then I most likely (95% sure) would do it...

let me know if you're interested... i know it probably isn't ideal for you, but it's an option at least. If not, to the junk yards I go.
