3.45, (same), its from a sport package 318is. I really didnt want to change the ratio so I jumped on this.

Now that I see the 3.91 for sale, I wonder how my car would drive with it. But My RPMs are like 4000 at 140 km/h, so I wouldnt want it to get worse...

3:91 = 4200 @ 130
Still get the 8l/100k on the econometer.

Truthfully the mileage isnt bad with my 3.91 diff, I'd say I definitly get the 8L-9L /100km, and off the line the car pulls like hell compared to the stock gearing.

If your interested I would trade you for your 3.45. The only reason I am looking for another is because I am going to be doing about 95% highway driving, or else I would definitly keep it.

Well, by the looks of it you have a 328, so I would not recommend you getting a 318 diff, especially if you will be doing highway driving. The member on bf (diffsonline) told me that they are not as beefed up as 325 or M3 diffs, and they will not last if you install them in those cars. He said he saw many people do it and it failed on them.

The gears can be swapped, internally, using the same case.

The 318 diff physically won't bolt into a 328 subframe.

^^^ Neither will the gear sets from each being smaller with the smaller diff casings, although E30 larger gear sets can be placed in e36 diff casings & work.

You're right, the 4-cyl use the 168 gearset and the 6-cyl & E30 M3 use the 188 gearset. Euro 96-99 M3's, and e46 M3, and V8+ use the 210 gearset. Something along those lines.
