No... this will not fit a 318ti, they use diffs that are exclusive to ti's and z3's. E30 diffs will fit as well!

propr'one - Not sure I understand the question? There are three bolts that attach the diff to the carrier. There are 4 bolts on the drive shaft.

How does this diff affect ASC+T? Do I need to disable it. I heard the car "jumps" if the trac is enabled.

This is a good deal, someone jump on it. This doesn't affect ASC+T at all. I had an LSD for two years before removing my ASC.

If you want to disable ASC just push the ASC button :P

Also, if your driveshaft or halfshafts don't match the flanges on the diff, the flanges are easily swappable with your stock diff flanges.

Good point on the flanges. When I installed my LSD I just used the flanges on my car. They slip right in, no problem at all.

As with all the parts I have listed, the diff is priced well. I just want it out of the garage!

This is a good deal, and a great mod! Just installed a 3.23 LSD on my ride this weekend. Well worth it and an easy swap!

Don't be concerned about the flanges - they are all interchangeable (need a 30 mm socket for the input flange though).

Oh - and buy the E12 Torx socket in advance so you don't have to run around the GTA to find one!

And don't reuse the axle bolts......ask me how I know...

Ouch - you rounded your bolts? I was lucky - mine were not rusted at all and I was able to reuse them without rounding any. This is a miracle - I'm almost famous for rounding bolts! haha

I wonder if I'll have problems when/if I have to swap again.

No, none were rounded or rusty, they're self locking bolts that stretch. I sheared off 4 bolts and then snapped off the heads of the remaining two while pulling onto the 400 with Miguel. I destroyed my right axle.

Lesson learned

Anyway, bump for a cheap diff that should have been sold by now!!! Where are you 325/328 owners?

I pity the fool that reuses their bolts.
