            Any chance that second m42 that you would have after your swap would be available for purchase?

                Yup. And an LSD to boot!

                I'd venture a guess that it's the rarest BMW diff (4.44LSD). It only came in the 1995 318ti automatic. The limited slip was an option. In 96 they went to electronic traction control and they were all open diffs.

                The owner at the M-Shop in LA did the PPI on it, and was like "Where did you get that!?" haha

                                I went to the Central Market in Poulsbo for the first time today - wow - that's an amazing store.

                                Pike Place's is cool and all, but some of the stuff is kinda dirty looking.
