BMW 210mm Ring & Pinion 3.85 Motorsport (E46 E60 E90 M3/M5)
Motorsport Crown and Pinion 3.85 to suit E36/E46 M3, E28/E34 M5, V8, V12 including E34 540i, 740i, 750i, 850i etc. These new Motorsport gears use M14 bolts. For gears which use 12mm bolts see the 210mm 3.91 M12 ring and pinion. The cheaper M12 gears are almost always on the shelf for fast delivery.
These are a great upgrade for the E36 M3 3.2L. For even more torque the 4.10 ring and pinion is a great option. This is only a mild upgrade for E46 M3, where the 4.10 is a better value-for-money option, given the factory ratio is 3.62.
Why not add an LSD while you're changing the gear ratio? It's a good time to install and LSD while you're there. If installing locally, you will also need a differential rebuild kit. If your LSD is worn beyond acceptable limits, you can also install an LSD rebuild kit.
