Garage List

It's possible but you have to make sure that they'll match up. I believe the older models have a bigger housing/pumpkin than the newer models. There's a list here somewhere or on E90 post that shows what year models are able to swap out. Also Harold @ HP autoworks on here knows what years can swap out, he's done so many of them.

IMO it would be dumb to swap in lower gears. With a tune and dp I already can't floor it in first gear, it would just make traction issues worse.

if you're swapping the diff, with the money you'll spend you may aswell do an LSD..

LSD will turn your car into a completely different animal. More useable power to the rear wheels. It's a no-brainer if you ask me. I went wavetrak and I love it
