    Hi guys, again!!

    I found out yesterday that i have a limit slip diff!!

    My car is an M plate 320i se saloon, nothing special when it was standared,

    There was no way the previous owners had done it, old army major 10 year ownership, and a old lady owner untill me!!



    I always thought the old girl was special as a few of my mates have 325's and one 328, and they could not pull away from me on the dueler, and i also rinsed a 323 which on paperwork should not of happened!

    Was a few bm' s let out of the factory with a few tweeks!! if so i think i have one

    Any ideas??

    I know that, i mean i have an lsd!! for sure, and its alot quicker than it should be but why?

    I heard that some sales men can choose a company car at a different spec, perhaps mine had that.

    Well chuffed, new it wouldnt have an lsd but never checked!! its fairly tight as well, two techies had hold of both rear wheels and they struggled to stop turning them together!

    The acceleration could be due to the ratio of the diff hence why you can pull away a lot quicker. You would need to get in touch with a local dealer with your VIN and ask if you can have a spec sheet. Either that or someone has fitted the LSD afterwards.

    Im really confussed because there is just no way, what ever it is, im well happy!!
    I might get it on the rollers and see what its making! I thought that you cant tune 2ltrs without spending big money. Before i put the coilees on it had m tec suspension aswell.
