Picked up a couple new bimmers today!

No new updates though. Been raining like crazy here in norcal. I was going to cut out the old cat during a break in the weather last week, but my brand new sawzall didn't come with a blade! Should of opened the box earlier. I'm shooting for the install this weekend and it's back to the smog shop Monday.

Hey guys transmission fluid vs. Differential fluid is there a difference? I can't find a clear answer. Also, the auto parts store only had Redline MTL 75/80 GL-4. Is that OK for LSD?

I think you need GL-5 for LSDs. You should be able to find it at a speed shop if there is one where you are. What part of NorCal?

They did have GL5 actually, but I saw a couple posts saying GL5 was a no no for the e30 LSD and G260 trans? I'm in placer/Nevada county area

OK so it looks like GL5 OK for LSD, but only GL4 for my G260. Seems to be the internet consensus.

New cat installed! No pics of my ugly ass welds. Best I could do with a sawzall and a MIG. Not to mention being on my back and having to fill in a partial 1/16" gap. Used a lighter to leak check and it all seems to be in good order. I have not changed out the diff or trans fluid yet, that will have to wait until next week.

Made it to work for the first time in the E30 no problem other than the oil and coolant light turns on after awhile (check lights) I'm thinking the sensors are on the fritz. Plenty of oil and coolant. Headed to smog shop on my way home and hopefully will walk out with the cert in hand.
