Cpuld an E92 335i LSD fit an F30 335i?

Hey, so I have an LSD off of an E92 335i. I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to fit it into my f30 with relative ease? I just wasnt sure how different it is than the one in ours. Thanks for the help!

I know that when they installed my F3x LSD they commented that the fastening system from the LSD to the half shafts was completely different than in the past.

The earlier 3-series used the old tried and true flanges with individual bolts. So it was easy to spin as you removed and reinstalled each bolt.

But the F3x uses a lighter system that holds the half shaft on with a small circlip that fits into a groove on the shaft. Needs a special tool that fits in a pops it off the circlip. See photos.

Short answer, no. Just look at the part numbers.

Lol, everyone is so quick to say no.

It may be possible, depending on the splines of the e92 diff. E92 diffs use the same clip on the shaft to secure output shafts in the differential.

The difference between e92 and f30 is that bmw made the f30 half shafts and output shafts one piece eliminating the 6 bolts

We are quick because it's been answered before.

Where was the issue? Spline, axle length, both?
