The question is: "Is it open or LSD?"

if LSD then I am interested.

I don't believe they had LSD until the E36 in 92'. EXCEPT on the E30 M3. So you won't be interested .. :)

It is an LSD if it is out of a 325is, to make sure it is find the id tag on the diff and go to the dealer to verify that it is an lsd.

You don't need to goto the dealer to find out. Just pull out the tag, sand it down, clean it and it will say 3.73 LSD.

I am 200% sure that LSD was an option on 325i. I've seen them sold on ebay, and ETK never lies. :)

So which one do you have and why are you selling it?

Just jack up the rear and spin one tire... if they both spin the same way then its open, if they spin opposite of each other then its a lsd

If it is a real LSD, then BMW painted a special "S" tag on the housing. This is pertaining to e30's and E21's. I've installed two, they both had the marking.
