As a generic reply, I would say there is because of different gearing ratios and also some models have LSD...

well I want to switch out the diff in my '84 318i with an e533i diff with 3.25 LSD. The car the diff is from was an automatic. I was just wondering if that would still work with my manual car.

Thanks Brettski, i will do that.
