you may want to check to see if you already have a LSD. if you have a 5speed, your final drive ratio will be 2.93:1, and to see if you have a LSD, check the tag on the differential and look for S293. if you dont see an 'S' then you have an open diff. the stock LSD's on these cars only perform 20% lock; therefore, you will still have one wheel spinning at times under certain conditions.
the LSD's off the 325i/is are 3.73:1 which would result in a very short 1st gear and high highway rpms, which would also affect your gas mileage. most would probably end up regretting the swap.

Limited slip isn't much help
I have it on my IROC-Z and I still have to be really careful on takeoff and taking turns cause my rear would spin out.
Electronic traction control is the way to go (dunno if it was availible for e30 line though)
