This is what Harold at HP Autowerks said about the diff on another forum:
"What you have here is an early production automatic 3.46 ratio final drive unit. That is a good find as it is very rare. It will fit your 2008 335i with a manual transmission if that is what you have."
And this is how he knows:
"We have been doing LSD's on the E9x chassis since 2007, then pick up the E8x chassis soon after that. Not to mention E36/46 chassis as well. No less than 160 units of Quaife and 30+ units of Wavetrac have gone out of our doors so we know what it is when we see one.
To answer your question, it is bolted."
So I bought it and got a really sweet deal, it only has 6300kms on it to boot, so it is almost new!
These wrecking yards make me laugh, because when they do not know how to take something of they cut it!!
As you can tell by the pic.
If they did not cut the drive-shift off like that they would have made money off of it down the road.
Unfortunately I have to wait until mid February because the wavetrac is on back order.
