BMW LSD conversions
Rebuild. Revision. Modification.
When dimensional types 168, 188, 210, can be done any performances ,without changing the structure. It is possible to purchase new spare parts and consumables, such as bearings and frictions. These types can be found in models: 3 series: Е30 (1982-1993), E36 (1991-1999), Z3 (1994-2002) 5 Series: Е28 (1981-1988), Е34 (1988-1996) 6 Series: Е24 (1976-1989) 7 Series: Е23 (1977-1986), Е32 (1986-1994) 8 series: Е31 (1990-1999) The latest BMW model came out with limited slip differential is Е36 328i. After that the only LSD application are M-models, equipped with visco LSD, case produced by GKN. This course does not give satisfaction of an real BMW fan. So I have developed various options for LSD for new models Е46, Е90, Е39, Е60, Е38, Z4…
Variant 1 (“carrier”): assemblage of differential from E36 into the E46 rear axle carrier. I can modify only a rear axle carrier or carrier with E36 LSD. It covers BMW E46 modifications 318d, 320d, 320iM54, 323i, 325i,328i,330i.
Variant 3: mounting of differential typ 188 or 210 into a car with typ188K or 215K . It include the models Е38. There is an opportunity for visco LSD.
Variant 4: similar to Variant 2. Installation of LSD case typ210 in the differential of typ215K(L). Possible installation of VISCO case typ210(the last does not apply to E46).
