GET A QUAIFFE DIFFERENTIAL!
They are absolutely wonderfull.
I have driven E30's with straight diffs (2.93s) and limited slips (3.73s), and the quaife in my m3 is by far the best. It is one of the best things on my car. It makes the car handle power so much better. Also, with blizzaks and a quaife, the car is VERY good in snow, believe it or not. There is a reason why BMW went with a geared limited slip diff with the new M5 and M3: because they are a million times better! Plus, quaife's come wiht a good waranty, and the company adhere to the philosphies of old world craftsmanship. That is pretty rare today.....

Are there any popular tranny or differential upgrades to go with my new 2.5L motor that's being built for me right now? I was thinking of a lightened flywheel as well ... any advice? Do people pretty much stick with the stock tranny and diff or are there upgrades ... better gears, etc?
