Hopefully someone will have a straight answer to this...?
I have a 328i 1997 coupe with the medium case open diff (rather than an LSD)
Does the 325i auto have the same size diff casing?
The reason I ask is I have acquired internals from an LSD
(due to the weight of the differential I could not ship it in one piece - so the intention was to fit these internals straight into my current diff casing)
I'd rather have a 'spare' casing that I can fit the internals into, then swap the whole unit straight over, to reduce time off the road for my 328i.
Locally there is a 325i auto being broken for spares, so hoping the diff is also a medium case...
Anybody with diff swapping experience? feel free to chip in some advice for me
