Still no rear end upgrades?

With everyone getting more and more power down i would think companies would be releasing new clutches and beefing up the rearend to prevent problems? ...I love more power but just hope my rear end holds..

What are you worried about? The diff? Axles? Unless you really want an LSD or you are launching your car at every other light I wouldn't worry to much about upgrading the differential, based off of past BMW's they don't really seem to be a weak point. Just my 2 cents.

i'm actually worried about my clutch and brakes. to the point it is starting to scare me. I've had to make a couple of sudden stops and i can feel the brakes not up to par. Also, my clutch is slipping in 3rd.
