    BMW E46 320ci - Diff ratio

    Afternoon all,

    Can anyone shed any light on the diff i have in my e46 320ci 2003?

    Im led to beilieve it has the same ratio as the 316 and 318i's (3.38 ratio manual)?

    Does this mean my diff is small case - 168mm?

    Just looking at diffs on ebay found a 4.44 ratio! That would be mental, but unusable!

    Cheers
