No mate, my car handles fantastically without one so am not going to buy one

I was more surprised that it DIDN'T have one as she acts like she does

when I spin one of the rear wheels on my car, the other one does not spin, is that LSD or ASC? The guy at the shop told me I had LSD

Difficult to tell from that

Jack up the back end, then spin one wheel and see which way the other one goes. if it goes the same way then you have an LSD

well, if it's important to you, then I suggest you stop looking into it. You thought you had one . . . just continue on in ignorant bliss!! Otherwise, you will either have to live with dissapointment or do something about it . . .

Bring your car to the dealer. They'll flush your LSD and add DOT 5 traction fluid to your drift module, then you'll be good to go.
