Default Fitting A MFactory Pro Helical LSD In The UK - MFactory & Grinspeed Motorsport - 08-15-2016, 02:47 AM

If anyone's considering this in the UK, I've just had the work completed at Grinspeed Motorsport in Leyland and would highly recommend both this company and MFactory.

All queries (both to MFactory and Grinspeed) were answered pretty much immediately and I couldn't have asked for more when the work was being completed.

Stevie (the owner of Grinspeed) was willing to meet me out of hours to arrange delivery and collection and whilst the work was being completed I was sent ongoing emails and pictures showing how everything was going. At collection, Stevie wouldn't take payment until I'd fully tested the car and was adamant I'd take it for a good run and was 200% happy before letting it go.

Overall a great experience.

Here's the contact details for Stevie and Grinspeed:-

Total cost (parts / labour inc VAT) was 1900.99.

Here's a picture from Stevie at Grinspeed showing what was fitted:-

Yep... and after a few months of driving with one I'd never go back to OEM

Choice wasn't completely driven by cost however, pre ordering I did compare to a Quaife.

Inc fitting, the Quaife was more expensive. For anyone considering this option it's really worth looking and comparing what you get with the MFactory Pro Vs the Quafie for example.

For those interested, I'm use MFactory can / will elaborate more or point you to the right support / info threads.

Hi there , sorry to drag up an old thread !

How are you finding the diff? what ratio did you go for on the final drive?

I'm in the planning stages on building a 335i into a track/drift/demo car , M factory diff is on my shopping list eventually , but i think i'll be needing the 2 way metal plate diff as drifting is its main use.

my previous car you could buy a 2way diff for 800 new but the BMW its not so fortunate!

Thanks.
