Unfortunately I can't get one :/ unless someone regularly travels to Europe. The guy is unwilling to ship to the us. I have a super slim chance of picking one up because my dad sometimes travels to Europe. But not likely. Doubt hell want to lug back a diff that has to be shipped to his hotel
Sorry guys Europe only.

No you're not. E39 M5 ring and pinion is a direct swap and results in a 3.15:1

good point.
but then you have to buy a M5 ring and pinion and have someone build it for you. kind of ruins the price point going that route.
besides i wouldn't want a 3.15 anyways unless i was running FI. but then again that's me.

My wife and I go to Europe quite a bit and her parents may make a trip here to the states around July. I could work something out if need be.

What's wrong with Europe guy putting these things in boxes? Ok so adds to the cost but still cheaper than other LSD's

Idk. I told him I'd be more than happy to pay for intense shipping costs but he still said no. He "might" be a forum member here. Not sure.
