Did the 535i come with the limited slip differential? I asked the owner and he wasnt sure about it. I know just jacking the rear end and seeing if both wheels spin is a valid way of checking. Anyone know the specs for a '89 535i?

Thanks for the specs! Does anyone know a valid way to check to see if the car has an LSD?

It is marked on a tag on the diff (if it is still there and you can read it).
Or you can pull the diff and look.

Lift the rear of the car while in nuetral, turn one of the wheels, if the other side turns in the same direction you have the LSD, if it turns in the opposite direction it is an "open" differential.
In lieu of all this spin the tires on a loose surface, two marks = LSD

If the tag has S 3,10 on it you have LSD. My 535i does, but it's also euro spec.
