    What is it? I can't find a definitive answer but I've seen 1.2L suggested.

    well, if you can't find the exact answer, you could drain yours and see how much was in it in the first place. if it wasn't leaking, of course.

    Thats about right. I had to order 2 litres of fluid for mine and had most of a bottle left over. I had a moan coz the oil for the LSD is not cheap...

    Mine wasn't an LSD, the LSD I've bought was drained prior to posting.

    Hey Mark

    I just Royal purpled my 328 sport with 3.0 M3 lsd.
    2 quart's is what I bought which is just short of 2 litres and had a little left.
    If I remember right its 1.7 ltrs.
