I really enjoy mine, it's a very nice car to drive compared to my last e30. Less noise and more comfort, i's fine as a daily but I'm sure M3 power would be nice

I should probably start a thread on my own one some time

--- EDIT ---

Any more info on the diff swap? I have an E30 LSD that was poorly rebuilt and needs to be taken apart to fix backlash etc, might as well put it in the e36

Yeah they are a lovely car to drive... Lots of comfort, but I still miss my e30 as a daily

Diff wise, its an e30 3.73 LSD. There was a whiney input bearing on it, so needed to be spit anyways too. So just picked up a standard open medium case diff from an e36. Have them both split at the min and gonna get Dave to set it up for me since I've no experience setting backlash/gear mesh/preloads, and would like piece of mind on it going into a road car I'm likely to sell on soon enough

For the medium case swap, Ill be changing prop and half shafts too

3.73 diff along with a lightened flywheel, should make it a very quick car off the mark! Contemplating a 6speed swap to give it a motorway gear at the top end
