Then again it depends on how much you paid new as well but BMW doesn't discount that much.

The LSD is a great idea but for $3k I am up to $11k in mods from Dinan not counting wheels/tires and downpipes. After all is said and done maybe I should have bought an M3? I guess the M3 doesn't have our torque but they handle great right out of the showroom.
There is a much better alternative to the Dinan products. The IC for example is similar to the Code3 FMIC, and used to be produced by the same manufacture(Turbonetics). Dinan added some air baffles and really marked up the retail price.

Same goes with Dinan Stage 3 suspension, it can be duplicated for much less with even better handling characteristics.

The research was done by a few talented folks on the site (including Harold at HP Autowerks).
Please provide a link to this 'writeup'.
