They came stock on 325i's with automatic transmission with optional LSD. the 325iX had 4.10:1 LSDs with viscous coupling, the M42 318's had small case 4.10 diffs, and the M3 had a 4.10 LSD which would be a direct swap to a 325i/is.

4.10:1 on a eta would be way to extreme. 1st gear would be practically useless. the most i would do is 3.73 off an iS, which still may be too short

no probably not, also how did you fit those tires in the back? did you have to roll the fenders?
