Ahhh, so V's car lives on in yours, then. Nice. Now I understand why you need the LSD. Looking forward to seeing how it runs, especially up here at altitude.
My car's a 2007.5 (June) production, so I'm pretty sure I ended up with the welded ring gear. I'd have to go swapping internals if I wanted to upgrade, but like I said, that's a long ways off. Not really interested in extracting max power out of this car, since it's my DD.
