    Couple additional factoids:
    - Front bumper was never drilled for the plate holder (plate holder will come with the car).
    - Stock parts (springs, struts, sways) and oil cooler, and intercooler are available to the winner if desired.

    @TheCommander I just checked the build sheet and LSD is not mentioned. It was also not part of Dinan work.
    Reason for sale: we have two 135i cars. Keeping the other one.

  • TheCommander (registered bidder) 1 day, 17 hoursago

    @scforsale Is there a way to find out ? also why are you selling your car?

  • scforsale (seller) 1 day, 17 hoursago

    @TheCommander My understanding none of e82 135i cars came with LSD. Not 100% sure if 1M did or not.

  • TheCommander (registered bidder) 1 day, 17 hoursago

    Seller, Does the car have a limited slip Dif?

  • scforsale (seller) 2 days, 8 hoursago

    @Supersix Got it. Dash is good. No bubbles or pulling away from edges.

  • Supersix (registered bidder) 2 days, 8 hoursago

    Just above the vents. A lot of them pull away and form a long bubble. Can’t tell from the one dash picture

  • scforsale (seller) 2 days, 8 hoursago

    @Supersix AC is cold.
    What type of dash crease do you refer to?

  • Supersix (registered bidder) 2 days, 8 hoursago

    How is the A/C, Dash. Crease on Dash. Has it pulled away?.
