Here is an old post from boardmember KirklandM5:
Guys, this is really not that big of a deal...the problem though is BMW ring and pinions are generally not available new....but no biggie...plenty of place to find them in used BMW Diffs.
3.45 1979-1980 BMW 733i (one of the few 6 cyls with the large 210mm ring gear aka typ 21)

3.73 Euro E24/E28 M5/M6

Not quite sure where the 4.10 is, but you don't want that much gear in an E39 M5 anyway.
