We can now supply complete final drives with Quaife already installed (in exchange for yours) for GBP1,533 +vat. We have one unit currently available. We'd need you VIN to confirm compatibility.

Wavetrac seems still not to offer anything for a DCT, which is a bit strange to me, as the process with the welded gearring also works with the DCT (quaife is offering it) and for the rest I cannot imagine there is any difference between a LSD for a auto or a DCT....? or am I missing something here.
Because of it's functionality I am leaning to the wavetrac.
Quaife currently has a DCT application.

Quaife works with one tire on dirt/snow/ice

For those who think the Wavetrac is superior to Quaife when one wheel is in dirt/snow/ice, here is what one of my E46 3-series customer had to say:

Yes, with one wheel on snow and one on asphalt, the Quaife was working and the car accelerated from a stop as it should.

Is there anyway to find out what current 6spd autos ratios are? There a calculator of some sort. Id like to play around with it and see what suits me best
