Does my car have an LSD?

I have a 1987 535is/5speed and I was wondering how I would be able to tell if I have an LSD or not. I'm going to replace the differential fluid and I'm wondering if I have to put in any additives for it... Thanks!

Mein Auto:
When you have the rear end in the air, turn the rear wheels. If the both turn in same direction than you have a closed or LSD. There are no visible differences to the casing and there arent special fluids.
