I have a 97 328is and I want to put an M3 differental in my car. How is the driving afterwards?? Do you gain that much acceleration?? How is highway driving after?? Finally how much is the cost? Has anyone here done this mod before?? Thanks

What's the figures for the stock E36 328 and the stock E36 M3 differential?

As I recall the bigger the leap, the more you'll feel the difference.
so let's say you have a 3.15 final drive ratio. If you get a 3.23 one, then you won't feel a big diff.

Remember that you gain the accerlation by getting a higher final drive diff, but then you lose some top end speed as a result.
