The LSD is for the 330i, which is sticking around regardless of a sports car purchase. Just sayin'.

I'm mostly finding people complaining about the MFactory clutch-type diff.

I'm going with MFactory helical unless they convince JV that their clutch diff is tolerable on the street.
Could always harvest a torsen out of a Z3 diff.

If that fit in an E46 case (which it doesn't) it would be better to use one of the earlier clutch-pack ones.

Huh. I'd always assumed that the E46 and E36 and E30 guts were fairly interchangeable. I guess it's just E36/E30?

E46 is a smaller case which is part of why the giken never worked well.
