Differential Upgrade

I have a '95 325is with an open 3.15. Im looking to upgrade but im not sure on fitments. From what car can i swap differentials from that would involve no modification. I have heard of problems with output flanges or something not matching up. So again im just wondering what can be easily swapped over to my car. I found a 3.45 from a 94 318 so maybe that will fit? If not how hard is it to swap over flanges. Any help is much appreciated.

You can't directly swap to a 318i diff. The drive shaft lengths and subframe mounts are different.

You can swap if you change the rear diff cover and the output flange, not hard at all, adds an hour to the job. Just gotta have a puller to remove the flanges.

Might as well upgrade to the m-roadster diff cover at the same time
