Be very careful here. I was looking into buying one of these cars and was
told by a BMW technical guy that the traction control and limited slip
options were mutually exclusive on these cars. Period. Every car I found
locally had traction control so I opted for a scruffy old Porsche instead.
;-) I don't know what year the traction control became standard, but I was
told that's when the LSD went away for good (except the M3 of course).
For what it's worth...
