FS: 3.46 Diff

3.46 Open diff for an E46.

I was going to install this on my car but I manged to total it first. The diff was never installed and just had it's fluid changed with Mobil 75/90w. I bought the diff from a salvage yard in Buffalo, NY. I have no idea of its prior history.

$550 Shipped

Not trying to knock your thread, but this looks pretty expensive for a diff that you dont know anything about its hystory and others have sold in the forum within the last couple of months for $300 without all that rust...

3.46's come out of automatics.. I doubt if it has been abused.

vmwerks- Thanks
fashion- Not trying to knock my thread? You did, huh...

This thing is beefy and I guarantee it will out live your car. The diff like I said in the first post is from Buffalo, NY. They use salt on their roads, surface rust is inevitable.

Also now on eBay:

You are very right in regards to a diff outlasting the life of a car and maybe 2 cars actually... However, alot of us actually swap out diffs all the time so there is no telling whether a diff was taken out of its original automatic car or out of its 2nd,3rd, or even 4th car for that matter without knowledge of its prior history...

Also.. Speedy.. sorry if you feel I was knocking your thread but I wasn't trying to... There are certain things that may raise a caution flag to some of us and will make us want to inform other fanatics. In this case, unfortunately it had to do with this diff, but if you were a consumer looking to purchase this diff then my comment would have probably made you a more aware consumer and it would have been to your benefit for me to post what I did! However, again I am sorry if you feel I was knocking your thread but one thing that is factual about my post is that a 3.46 diff was sold on here about 1-2 months ago for $300. Good luck with the sale!!!
