which diffs did you look at, some of the diffs used a single mount very similar to the mount on the transaxle, the late 80s 325's even used the same rear wheel bearings, the axles should be very close, yes they used the identical style axle shafts, bmw and alfa used very similar parts during those y...

the bmw rear differential is a really good cheap solution, the ratio is about right and there are tons of used ones in every junk yard. the only thing you have to deal with then is mounting the brakes up, you could figure out a way to mount them to the diff or move the brakes outboard. as for the cu...

why in the world would you leave the transaxle in the car if you are going to go to a forward gear box, there are many companies that make rear differentials even ones with brake caliper mounting so you can keep the brakes right where they are, you can also get them with whatever level of limited sl...

i ran across these clutches before but not on ebay on another aftermarket site, but they were selling for cheaper than that! would be great but the problem is they dont come with the flywheel and they are usually needed, factory kit costs around $700 with flywheel and the rest of the shit.

the passageways may be the same but the crown of the combustion chamber is not! not only would you have to change the valves and seats, you would also have to undergo major machining to the combustion surface. if you want to do this, you can use the heads, the cams are the same, obiously not lift, d...

just for the record, at least spell it right!! its Maratona not Maradona, but they are seriously ugly, if your lookin for a way to clean up the bumpers, on the us version remove the bumpers collapse the shocks and leave the plastic top covers off, it makes the front look 100x better, the back looks ...

i believe the hydrolics run off of the transmission, not sure though, which should make sense considering the automatic trans pumps its fluid through the tranny while the manual just uses a bath system to fling the oil over the gears. the manual trans is very simplistic, not able to support a hydrol...

took you long enough! ive had the same problem with my milano, but i was lucky enough to get it open with the rip chord, had to pull like hell and thought it was going to snap but what the hell, its worth pulling til it breaks to avoid the alternative. as far as the load leveling, on the us models a...
