    yeah, but not cheap.

      As long as one can make one's own button, a Tilton is actually cheaper than an aluminum flywheel & performance clutch combo typically sold for BMW's, especially V8's and/or the S62.
      The Tilton pressure plate is about $500 and the disks are about $200.
      UUC's clutch & flywheel combos for the E39 M5 *START* at $1800, but that company isn't exactly known for bargain prices.

          ;) That must be it.

          I think the tag will be sufficient for determining which configuration it is.
          I'll have one of each... I'll be getting tooth counts all over the place.

          OBTW, here are the configuration identifiers:

          GS6-53BZ-THGZ 02/2002 - 07/2010
          E60 LCI through 12/2009

          GS6-53BZ-THA9 01/2009 - 06/2013
          F10 through 06/2013

            It has to be, really :) All DZ gearboxes i have checked has got the 20 degree angle and diesel ratios, the E46/E39 x30d GS6-53DZ/GS5-39DZ and E9x 320d-330d GS6-37DZ/53DZ gearboxes for example is commonly used on turbo builds over here.
            The E9x 335i GS6-53BZ is getting more common because of 30 degree angle and better gearing ratios.

              That is exactly what I'd expect to see based on the RealOEM info.

              Do the tags actually say BZ? Is there an English thread anywhere in which someone grabs a 335i box and counts input/output turns to estimate ratios?

                Yes it does, heres from a 135i for example :)

                Hmm i dont think ive read about it in english forums, but in swedish :) People normally use DZ versions in M20 configs here because it fits the engine angle. Pretty common that they use DZ on M50s too though, mostly because of better price and theres is more of them. But BZ version is getting more used because of the better gearing as i mentioned and that the angle is like the M50 etc.
                Specially the first gear is short on the DZ and most people here doesnt really like that :P

                Oh and there are more than one bellhousing at least on the GS6-53DZ, some are too big and doesnt fit M20/M50 etc. It has to do with the codes after the gearbox model, like HGA, THGZ etc.

                      I'll just have to count teeth when I get both.

                      I would like to put the DZ sixth into a BZ box, if you know anyone who has some gears hanging around.

                        This looks cool:

                        Looks like an option for square wheel/tire fitment on an iX with max effort rear wheels/tires.

                              Does it do anything but fully open and fully locked?
                              I want mine to be automatic based on differential driveshaft speed, and maybe lateral/longitudinal g's with a "launch" button that gives 100% lock until the vehicle exceeds whatever speed threshold I set.

                                No it doesn't, so you got to have a after market ECU or something too.
