It is an engineering marvel, probably and overkill

for my stock 130hp tii (in a good day). If you have

more hp then the quaife is probably the ticket. A

regular 40% lsd is just as adequate for racing or

spirited driving. It comes down to personal choice,

opinion, feel, biases and values. I was intrigued by

the technology and at that time I could afford it.

One of "bad" thing about the quaife is that you need

both rear wheels on the ground for it to work...so

don't go 4 wheeling with it

I spoke to Quaife about a set up for my Inka. BUT: speak to Dubois fiorst: he has the real deal in his car and there is a lot more involved than just the purchase from Quaife. You casically have to build a differential, and you will need those skills or find someone who has the components and the skills. Michael is the best source in this rarified area for info. You are also looking at a grand just for the Quaife gear, and $X for the rest. Sizeable investment. Might consider a 3.90 LSD built by the guy who does diffs for 2002 AD: he can build any rate you want, any configuration you need. Knows his stuff and has the parts. I think his name is Bob- not sure. Call Nelson and ask about it. I spoke to the diff builder 2 simmers ago in SLO about my 3.64: we thought it was a rare original 2002 3.64 LSD. When I replaced it after it started to go, i discovered it was not the coveted original 2002 3.64. Not worth rebuilding. I like the 3.90 better. Run them in both cars. 25% lock was spec. I think my Sahara has been built to 40%. Both are from 3 series. Good luck. Email Dubois about the quaife stuff.

I plan on doing the same thing... ever try to find a long neck 3.64 LSD? Pretty damn hard. So I'm opting to upgrade to the quaife.

I did put a quaife in my new Mini Cooper S w/JCW kit. It litterly transformed the car! and made more of a difference than the JCW kit did... but the two combined are killer.

It's great on FWD cars, especially when the Acura Integra type R is in the same class as you (they have factory LSD) in auto x.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
