I suggest you stop calling him a liar unless you can back it up. You are threadjacking and not contributing to the thread. If you feel its a copy, so what? Unless DEFIV has a design patent, there is nothing illegal about making a copy.

You also said "Mine is much different than that blatant copy BTW, so there's no use comparing the 2". So in one post you say it is a copy and in another you say that the DEFIV is much different ..." It can't be a copy if DEFIV is much different!

If you look at the shape of the aluminum piece, you can see it is designed to fit around the pumpkin. The shape of the pumpkin is fixed so any solution that goes around the pumpkin has to use that shape. Both designers traced around the outline of the transmission, which is the reason for the superficial similarity.

Just sent you a PM. I have a 2011 335i coupe manual transmission. I am pretty sure that means I have a large transmission.

I borrow this guide from another forum. Hopefully, you guys will find it useful.


*please do this at your own responsibility*



Installation guide for differential Lockdown


This guide is meant to serve only as an aid. If you arenít mechanically inclined please seek help from professionals.
Is recommended that the unit is installed while the suspension is loaded, meaning car on the ground. Plastic oil change ramps is what I use
Tools needed:
1 x 16 mm wrench
1 x 17mm box wrench
2 x 17mm open-end wrench
Set of Plastic Oil Change Ramps

Step#1
Remove the 3 bolts from the differential cover (16mm wrench)

Step#2
Place the supplied aluminum differential plate and fasten it with the 3 supplied M10x30 bolts with washers. Fasten bolt #2 to prevent distortion on the differential cover. Use blue Loctite if desired, not mandatory. Torque no more than 60nm or 45lbs. Tools required: 17mm wrench

Step#3
Some models have a plastic cover on the subframe. If so, remove it. Pry it out.

If you want to keep this plastic on the subframe cut the corner off

Step#4
Insert the supplied frat aluminum bushing on the rear of the subframe. (red arrow)The rubber sleeves remains on the socket to prevent vibration and noise. Also, to insulate and protect the coating on the subframe.

Insert the supplied M10x140 long bolt with a washer and on the opposite side of the subframe (facing the front of the car)

insert and conical shaped bushing with the adjustable link.

The washer goes between the adjustable link and the nut with plastic locking collar. No Loctite is required. Torque no greater than 80nm or 60lbs. Tools needed: 2 x 17 mm ring wrench.
Step#5
Adjust the length of the link so that the lower rod end can be bolted to the differential plate.
Fasten it to the deferential plate with the supplied M10x40 bolt. Use two washers, one on each side of the rod. (this will allow the link to move without interference of the plate and prevent possible damage to the differential case/core)No washer is required on the other side of the plate due to the use of nut with plastic locking collar. No Loctite is required.
Torque no greater than 80nm or 60lbsTools needed: 2 x 17 mm ring / open-end wrench

Take notice of the adjustable link that has a right and a left-hand thread. For adjustments simply hold both rod ends and turn only at the central portion. Thus, the link contracts or expands apart.

Step#6
Check everything, take the car on a test drive and check everything again, for loosen nuts and/or oil leaks from differential.

I am really interested in this and appreciate when costs come down.
Defiv $728 vs. $200 boostaddiction brace vs. yours at $200

SO the defiv kit looks like it comes with more parts and has a BURNOUT video proving it.

Basically I spend 66% less and what am I missing?

You will be missing the 3 differential bushings that even if replaced will not contribute towards anti wheel hop all that much. What you will notice would be mostly NVH. Replacing them will also increase labor cost. The lock diff kit is super easy to install and most people don't need a shop for that. For differential bushing on the other hand most people will need help from a shop.
For the money it does the job extremely well.

So I understand...
With this $200 kit I will add NVH because the diff bushings are still stock?
Or
With any of the 3 options I will add NVH no matter what?

You will add HVH no metter what but this kit will generate negligible increase compared to the other two.

Great option for a great price! Ordered and looking forward to posting pics of the install. I especially like that this is an easy and appreciable upgrade, and if you just HAVE to upgrade your diff bushings to solid, you can source your own options at a huge savings, rather than succumb to the excessive pricing of the other kit available right now. In the end, this is an easy part to have machined and was never worth $750 for what goes into it material-wise. And for the members with unlimited funds and want the other kit, or who don't turn their own wrench and the price for parts and labor are just a number anyway, it doesn't affect you one way or the other! EVO owners have used nearly identical kits for years, so someone is always copying someone, I guess. I just care about getting the most for my money. Period.
