with all due respect, learn to drift. Hopefully you are trying to drift in empty parking lots rather than public roads, for the sake of everyone else, but ive never had an issue getting the back end out.

and it'll be awfully difficult trying to find a cheap limited slip diff; the cheapest ive seen them go for is around 1300, excluding installation costs (i could be wrong, but i doubt thats cheap either). in the end youll be paying a little less than half of what you can sell the car for.

remember, it's not the arrow, its the indian. drift responsibly!

Yeah we're always in big car parks but when we're on a public road we have a mate abit in front on the phone telling us if there is any cars always been responsible on the road hahaha and I got no problems getting it out it's just a bit harder with out a lsd and doing skids it always does single wheel peels I was thinking of just putting a mini spool in it there only a few hundred but it makes it fully locked and I don't want to stuff my drive shafts might just have to do that for a year or so till I save up

m-factory diff, 800 bucks or so for the LSD core but you still have to load it into the diff. so 800 + 6-8 hours of labor easy

'Too ghetto' says the kid who thinks it's responsible to drift on the street and then talk about it on a public forum. Do you hand your employer a jar full of your weed when he tells you he's gonna drug test you?

yes, weed is legal in 23 states. if my employer wanted to drug test me, I'd find a new job.

If you can't figure out how to initiate and maintain a drift without your e-brake or a LSD, you may as well just give up now.

I guess it went over your head sir, no drug test ever. stop being a slave. I bet your the same slave that goes through body scanners at the airport, same guy that shows his ID to any LEO that asks. You are an ignorant fool, ****. quit posting worthless sh!t all over this forum. Go back to being invisible.

No you're out of luck. Unlike the E30 and E36 that can get a swap easy to have a LSD, the E46 non-M isn't like this. And to fit an M3 one takes a lot of parts swapped to.
look in the Driveline section of forum. some new company is selling LS diff units for under a grand. that's going to be the cheapest. otherwise places like diffsonline, TMS sell LS diffs for like $1300-$2500 depending on type and brand.

oh and say nope to dope and ugh to drugs

Made me laugh.

***********************************************

To me this thread sounds a bit Troll-ish, but if it's for real here you go.

Forum sponsor M-Factory has/had a LSD special at $800 dollars plus if you sent them your diff they'd build their LSD unit into it for the incredible price of $400 dollars. So before any needed shipping you'd potentially have a bolt in LSD for $1200 dollars. You'd need to contact them to see if you can get this deal.

Yes they do, I've got one in my 330Ci. But it's about 50% more expensive than the info I gave.

EDIT:

Quaife QDF 14N = 2.93 & 3.07 Diffs

Quaife QDF 13N = 3.15, 3.23, 3.38, 3.46, & 3.64 Diffs
