    Exclamation Anybody have a large case differential not in use?

    I need a differential cover for my 745i. When I say need, I mean my car isn't on the road right now and I need it to be ASAP since I bought this to drive to work so I wouldn't be getting 11mpg highway in the bronco.

    Does anyone have a differential cover for a 210mm large differential they can sell me? I figure enough people upgrade the rear ends they may have a stock unit not in use. I can send you mine back if you want to keep the unit sealed, mine seals fine but the mount cracked off.

    Thanks in advance.

    Swap in a medium case - they're all over the place. Any 325e or 528e will have what you need.

    Any chance of finding just a cover?

    Its 30 degrees out and I have a wet garage thanks to all the snow, I am in no mood to swap in a new case, let alone retrofit a medium case. I don't want to downgrade parts over this whole thing.




    I figure someone who did a diff swap, maybe out of another euro e23, has a cover sitting around. Or maybe someone has a parts car, or a spare diff, or something. I do plan on adding more power to this car down the line so I don't want to swap in a weaker differential.

    I got the cover welded up. The guy who welded it said the metal contained so much zinc that he wasn't happy with the weld. I'm still looking for a cover, but for now the car is back on the road. I'm going to post up on mye28 and bimmerboard also. I'd like to find a cover sooner than later.
