What about an e36 differential with only 47k miles on it for a 325i?

bitcore will become famous soon enough bitcore will become famous soon enough
If it's from a manual, and you have a manual, and the gearing ratios are what you want, It will work.

I'd go with and LSD like M3 (what the guy on ebay is doing), but I like to spin my wheels

what does a limited slip do though? sorry for being a n00b on this topic but I have no clue. my problem is my car is revving real high at 70mph (4k) and I'm not in the mood to do an engine swap real soon...

Kevin325i is an unknown quantity at this point
Send a message via AIM to Kevin325i
A limited slip (LSD) transfers power from the spinning wheel to the oposite wheel (in a turn ussually inside wheels power transfered to outsides)

The real performance benefits are in cornering, it makes a slide considerably more easy to control and allows a lot more use of throttle input to correct a slide.

Drive around at 4k isn't going to wear your engine out to the point of a rebuild in a week or 2. I say sit on your hands till you find a manual LSD differential.

In the end it's your call.
