Lots of write ups about xDrive and switching power between front and back. But nothing about left and right traction. Does the X5 have limited slip differentials?

If both left wheels are on ice will they just spin or will the right side get any power?

Quoting from the BMW website technical information:

"
xDrive

xDrive adds revolutionary intelligence to the BMW performance arsenal. Under the most challenging condition, xDrive delivers variable power to individual wheels, providing tenacious grip and optimum traction. In all conditions, xDrive enhances driving dynamics to extract maximum exhilaration from tight curves and winding roads. The result is remarkably agile handling on any road, in any weather. "
