Who is busting out their credit cards for this? Had it been available when I placed my M235i order, and if M Performance parts were comparable with European Delivery port install, I think I would have ordered one. Not so sure now...

If you are going to track it, it is prob worth it. For everyday driving, I'm not feeling it. N4S

If I can't residualize and have it port installed after my euro delivery, then no. Love the idea, but BMW is reaching with this price. The M235i is supposed to be a daily driver for the enthusiast who doesn't need the track-star abilities of the M model vehicles (or not enough to justify their price). So, this LSD is a nice to have on a car like this for the majority of people who would even consider it (those of us on this board for instance).

It's a clutch type LSD which means it'll require maintenance (opposed to Quaife), it is more expensive, and will require me to pay for the install out of pocket. Plus on lease if it's rolled into residual, I can't keep it after lease maturity... which means I'd be paying around $3500 just for some weekend thrills. That's over $1000 a year for the privilege. Get dafuq outta here.

Might as well wait for the M2 and enjoy whatever else as is and stock until then.

$2900 huh? Probably some dealers will offer 10-15% off.

YOu should be able to choose your gearing at that price.

I just checked stocking in all the North American warehouses. The site should even be correct on how long it takes for us to bring it in.
