E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

This bulletin mentions a rear electronic limited slip differential. Wasn't everyone complaining about the lack of a LSD on the 335i, and the 135i?

This bulletin mentions a rear electronic limited slip differential (page 5). Wasn't everyone complaining about the lack of a LSD on the 335i, and the 135i?

Electronic LSD /= mechanical LSD. Similar in concept, totally different in execution. Electronic LSD is just a tweaked version of DTC.

How about both? A few laps in your own car to experience it , maybe slow learning laps..
Then a half day with a rental where you can test your own limits without risking your brand new car?
