That's interesting DH, here in the UK the speedo sensor (which also reads for ABS & DSC) is located it the rear wheel assembly, I think its the left one for the speedo looking from the rear, same as #21 here:

RealOEM.com BMW E46 328i REAR AXLE SUPPORT/WHEEL SUSPENSION

They may have put them in the diff in the USA, just seems a bit strange???
