Saloon=2 door Depending on the state you live in determines if you need to have a CAT or not.

Any other links that could answer if I have a limited slip diff from my vin?
Get under your car and look at the back of your diff, there should be a small metal tag atached to one of the bolts. If it starts with an S you have a limited slip. You can't go by VIN cause a previous owner may have changed the diff. Also some dealers would install a limited slip upon request when the cars were new which is another reason you can't go by VIN. The best way to tell is to just physically look and inspect your diff.
