In my 530, when driving in snow and accelerating, both tires always spin. I can tell by the bare pavement where the tires were, and the side to side sliding.
Does you car do the same?
I turned off DSC, but still found that if one wheel spins, the other one loses power as well. Maybe I'm biased since I know it's an open differential.
The reason why I'm asking an LSD is that I just throw a Cusco RS LSD into my R53 Mini Cooper S (it also have DSC, ASC, EBD, etc. etc.). The difference is phenomenal, turning it into a winter beater and enhanced launches, cornerings quite significantly.
Any electronic-based traction control is not even close to the effect of a mechanical LSD.
