the other side didn't do ANYTHING? If the car was in neutral, then this could mean the driveshaft was turned and the other wheel didn't turn because you DO have an LSD.
When it rains hard, go to an empty, flat, wide parking lot, get moving to where your tach is about 3K so you are near the torque band, turn sharply and STOMP IT to light up the rear tires. If you keep sliding around and are doing mad doughnuts then you have an LSD. If you slide a bit (maybe like a 180..) and then don't slide dramatically at all anymore and it feels like only one wheel is spinning, let off the gas because you have an open diff and you can screw that puppy up easially.

I have an open diff, I know this for sure. I had it on a lift a long time ago when I still didn't know and I spun one wheel when I was in park. The other wheel had like a 45 degree rotation DELAY before it even did anything, but it spun the wrong direction. So if you dont wanna slide around one day, get it on a lift one day and try it again, this time put the car in gear while its on the lift and spin one wheel a full rotation to see what the other wheel does.


LSD's arn't just for stright lines... when you turn hard, the inner wheel has much less grip because of the weight shift, if you apply too much throttle, that wheel will light up and cause the outter wheel to get zero torque, effectively reducing your power output to the ground to zero. An LSD prevents the dumpage of torque to the wheel with the least grip. In any case, this is good.

Is there a way to tell without physically doing this?

My car is a 1994 325is with ASC+T. Since it has the ASC, it doens't have an LSD right?

Having traction control does not mean it dosn't have an LSD.

My mistake, I thought it was that way for some reason.

On another note, didn't the LSD come with the winter package? Or am I thinking crazy even more?

It's all good

It may have, it would make sense to wouldn't it? I was having a hard time getting around last winter lol.
I do not know, nor do I have the winter package (or sport package ) so I can't tell ya.

I've got both the sport package and winter package(heated seats indicate the winter package, right?) so that would indicate I have one, maybe?

There's no way in hell I'd be able to understand that mechanical checking. lol. Isn't there some way we can check using our VINs?
