With the tune and lsd the 335 is better but the cost, reliability, and overall weight are still issues.
The diff for the E36 is purely for optimizing the limited torque. The LSD aspect of it is a benefit but the cost, weight, and reliability are the main benefits of the E36 over the 335 for me.
To be fair, you had an A/T 335 with no tune and no LSD. In that ballpark, I don't think anyone would disagree with you.
I guess I was confused about your cost/weight/reliability argument since every single post has been about how much faster it was.
