Yes. I know they've introduced it for some platforms, including the e36. Not sure if they have an e46 version but if not I'm sure they'll make one if you want it.

So I've had everything sitting in my garage for months -_-! I wanted to drift last season but with time and all the crap that I had to get done I kinda put it off.

So anyone know a good spot to practice?
I'm trying to possibly put my diff on in February/march but It would be sweet to be able to practice without having to always go to englishtown on certain days.

I have buddies of mine who meet up and have a spot, I can give you details. But other than that attending the clubloose and other local drift events is your best bet!

I just had too shave down the button a bit to get it too slip on snug. Other then that, pop the spring connected to the button and your good to go. Only thing is our ebrakes suck lol. Hence why Im in the process of installing my 16" ASD hydro

Even with expensive diffs 2 way lsd's i mean ur still gonna have noice on tight turns and stuff so if you are starting to drift and dont want to spend too much money get the diff welded. learn with it and when u get a 1.5 or 2 way lsd you will be even better drifter than before.
do u drive your car daily? i still trying to get the information about weld diff on E46

I personally daily my car (hope that changes next yr), but on my daily set of wheels, Ive been trying different tires/compounds and the set of Achilles Raidals im running in the rear is a harder compound and isnt wearing as fast as other sets of tires i ran, while having a welded diff. It really isnt bad at all. One thing i do recommend is too change out your diff bushings (and subframe bushings if possible since your sort of in there), because my one rear diff bushing got destroyed pretty quick lol. Going all solid come early next year. If your have any other questions feel free too shoot me a PM. Btw I been runnng my daily for a year now.

gotchya. is it a screw on button? I've got the same purple TF button and i know i'm going to have to dremel the stock button and get like some jb weld for it, but im trying to figure out how to get the spring out of the factory button, i'm half tempted to grab onto it with pliers and start spinning...

Its just a push on, and i used a little adhesive to keep it on good. Also too remove the spring there are two metal tabs on the bottom side of the ebrake handle bend those back and pop it out (if i remember correctly)
