Re: Digging into the Diff Rebuild

I recall a thread not too long ago explaining where to buy E46 M3 diff clutches. I've lost track of it, but it's out there and they are available.

I'm personally not interested (I have a spare cinnamon interior already). Just a friendly suggestion that you may want to include a location.
