Hi all, as in the title I need a diff,the label on mine is pictured. I though of going LSD but too expensive.
I'd settle for a different ratio just to get back on the road, I've looked at the 1.9 modle diffs and there's not much difference in ratio but will it fit?

Cheers

You have a small case (168) open diff of 1:3.45 ratio.

Any other small case diff will fix.

The other common ratio is 4.44 from an auto transmission car. Don't fit one of these. Your 2.0L Z3 already rev's to 3,000 rpm at 100km/h (60mph). Fitting a 4.44 will have it reving at around 3,900 rpm at the same speed.

Thanks, it looks like a few 1.9 either m43 or m44 different are about, I may have to go that route

Hello - I have one from a 2.2 and I am in Watford if you want to give it a go. Should fit the 2.0
