Good to see up to date pricing, the 130 diff has bolted ring gear so no extra machining and much easier than 135i etc with the welded ring gear.

Cant believe Birds are charging over £400 to install a 130 diff :shock: I presume that's a drive in and drive out job but even so!

In new year when im ready to think about fittin LSD I might see if I can organise a discount on Wavetrac from one of my customers who is a dealer for them, also I have a friend who did the Quaife install on my last 130 I will ask him about install pricing as well.

If there's a way of getting a Wavetrac and built up cheaper, I'd be interested too...or a Quaife... I'm really noticing the difference between the E-diff equipped 135i and the basic/open 130i set up.
2008 E81 130i replacing my 2010 E82 N55 135i that's for sale...

I noticed the difference in the 135i as well which the E-diff works ok if yours smooth with it, certainly a lot better than 130i diff without it, shame only the 135i and 123d got the E-diff as far as im aware, I wonder if it can be coded in on the 130i as it can be coded out when fitting LSD on the 135i I know.

Labour to build the diff up shouldn't be so bad on 130i with its bolted ring gear, same on early auto (non-dct) 135i as well, as per your quote from Regal @ £160 just to install the diff into housing, ive asked my supplier for a price for me on the wavetrac but will see if any movement on buying a few more, they will have to come from states to get better price so if we can get a few then will help on shipping costs, don't think we will get down to quaife money though just depends how much margin they have, quaife comes in just under £1100 with the vat as your quote.

Birds charge a ridiculous amount for installation, even though it is a drive in drive out service.

I paid £120 inc VAT for my Quaife install and that included the labour for replacing the pinion and driveshaft diff carrier bearings which I had supplied.
This was with the diff supplied removed from the car.

If I had of wanted a drive in drive out service it would have been an additional £120 inc VAT.

I wrote about who I used in the thread below and would thoroughly recommend.
