330d differincal in a 318ci

Will a e46 330d diff fit into my e46 318ci. I know the ratios will be different but will this make a big difference

Probably won't work, if the 330d diff has the same CV joint flange in front that the 330c and ci have.

Yes, technically the flange can be changed, but practically, it's not a DIY job.

As to ratios, www.realoem.com will tell. The d transmission is very different from the c's, so I wouldn't even hazard a guess.
