Limited slip???

I have a 99' BMW 540i with the 3:15 differential. Is this the same one that's in the M5? Is it atleast a LSD?

The 3.15 is found in the M3 as well, so most likely. To confirm physically its an LSD, lift it up and spin a wheel, and see which way the other wheel turns. If they turn oposite to each other its an LSD.
