Need an M tranny and M diff

Does anyone know of any good mechanics out there that can do this kind of work. I am looking for both units and I want to be able to sell mine at the same time. Can anyone help me out there.

What is wrong with your current 328 tranny?
The M3 and 328 transmissions are the same.

As far as the diff, all the six cylinder engines have the same diff housing, the only things your should look for are whatever ratio you want, LSD, and how many bolts the driveshaft has (4 or 6). For example a 3.15 325 diff with LSD is identical to an 3.15 M3 diff, neither is stronger.

Actually if I'm not mistaken the output shaft between the 4 and 6 bolt flange is interchangeable so you'll only need the gearset.

And yes the 328 and m3 share the same manual transmission.

Well then guys something is wrong. Under normal drving condition its fine but if I punch it after when I come to a stop I get this weird smell coming right from underneath the driver side door like something is burning. As ideas ??? I think my tranny is going. If that is the case is there any way to build the internals stronger.

Is it a sulpher or rotten eggs smell? Might be you catalytic converter......transmissions don't usually smell bad

No pal I have smelt the cats when they burn. This is more of a burning smell only when I hammer it. Saw Charlie and he said tranny fluid maybe leaking and burning on the exhaust.

Find where it's leaking from and replace the seal. I plan on replacing all my tranny seals when I have it out for my flywheel/clutch install.
