The fun way of course is to do some hard driving on a track (or somewhere safe). If you get a lot of inside wheel spin with DTC turned down or off, then you dont have the e-diff.

Its not listed in the VIN. BMW didn't tell anyone when they did this, and it took some knocking on doors to get them to fess up to this change. I guess they didn't want to steal some lime light from the new introduction of the 1 series.
