$970 LSD for E46 Non-M

Randomly browsing E46 things on e-bay and stumbled across this:
E46 LSD Diff

Never heard of them, just throwing it in for discussion

Too expensive and in normal driving you wouldn't even notice the car has an LSD.

It's nearly half the price of a Quaife, have you found a cheaper option?

I'm trying to see if he'll do a group deal since I know how many non-m's would go to him. Wertyu78 is heading up there to be the guinea pig soon

Nice man. If you get a group buy, count me in. Be sure to let him know that he'll make some decent $$ just off this forum alone with a price like that.

Exactly, I'm hoping he'd be willing to drop the price a little bit if we generate a lot of interest.

Every non-m owner I know talks about LSD's. if he did this for a year he'd probably be set for life

I wont get my hopes up for the $500 LSD...

The $970 for a no-name helical LSD seems at least realistic.

Most shops I've called around to ask $500 just to R&R a fully built pumpkin that has the LSD in it already.

And most shops I've called around to are easily confused about exactly what I mean when I ask them to install a LSD for me. I've been trying to find someone to actually install the LSD unit into the differential pumpkin (requiring setting of lash and possibly shimming and replacing bearings and seals, etc), and they think I'm asking them to just swap the finished differential pumkin (like what you can buy from BMW) in the rear.
