That's the component that made the E46 M3 so much fun to drive... And on a 335i, it would make a massive difference.

Erm, does anyone in Aus on this forum drive fast enough on the roads to make use of an LSD?

I definately understand the benefit of them, but have never had the need for one in day to day driving...I can only see a benefit on the track in Australia...

They're great for the track, yes, but they can also be handy in domestic driving- eg when going round corners in the wet- b/c it dramatically increases the speed at which you can go before the electronic traction control kicks in.

Yep, possibly more useful on a 335 than a 320 - I have to try very hard to get my traction control to kick in as the 2.0 doesn't have enough power to set the 255 rears loose :-(

^ I tell you, the number of times I see that little yellow light come on in my dash..... Let's just say an LSD would be a very useful device in my car.

I struggle to get it to come on in my 320 without going a bit mad...Much much easier in the 130 though...
