From what I experience without the LSD, the DSC would kick in and that is suppose to help you get traction when the wheel is slipping, but I find it gets in the way, but with the LSD it helps with getting traction and the DSC doesn't inter-fear, I find you have more control over the car, LSDs are not only for tracking the car as some may think. I think LSDs should be an option we should get on performance BMWs.

And having a 6MT helps a lot!

Use the LSD 12beat, use the LSD...
