As the title says, I'm after the diff from a 300d. I know there were a few different ratios but I'm after the 3.07. Thanks if anyone has one or knows there whereabouts of one.

If anyone has or knows of a diff for sale with a lower ratio than the 3.58 I'd possibly be interested. Thanks

Thanks Charles, much appreciated. It's for my 280ce purely for the fact I want it better on the motorways. I think the one you've got would've a bit too much for it but thanks very much for the offer.

Wise decision. Mine was for a V8 conversion I decided to leave undone.

This W116 450SE diff should have a 3.07 ratio and should fit a W123.

Thanks again, would you have any idea if the driveshafts from my 280 will fit into that diff box?

Druk will know far more than me, but I believe your driveshafts should fit, the only change needed is to find the flanges from a V8 propshaft to replace those you have from the 280. That link I posted earlier has most of the info required.
