I look at this as an investment.

I'll buy the Quaife LSD, have it installed and I have a lifetime warranty on that (Quaife gives lifetime warranty as the diff is indestructible and it doesn't wear such as those cluch type diffs do)

So, I drive it as much as I want and when/if I sell the car, I simply take it out and sell it separately! For let's say -20%. Just to be fair.

And you get your 800 pounds back!

Am I the only one to think in this way?
remember it costs 400 pounds odd to install it (and uninstall)

soo.... yeah not really worth it lol

plus it means you have to keep your stock diff the whole time.

actually it's 2 hours of labour... quoted by my mechanic it's a 100€ job. Anything more than that is a rip-off. Anyway, the Quaife is here, and is going to be put on on tuesday. Will let u know.

Imagine you have very little grip under one tyre, because you've hit a muddy puddle, patch of leaves, wet drain cover, or simply because you're cornering hard (and th ecar's weight has transfered to the outside wheel).

With your standard open diff, the engines' torque will take the path of least resistance, and simply spin up the wheel with limited grip. No power will go to the other wheel, and you'll lose propulsion.

With a Quaife Torsen, the diff clevery sends the torque to the wheel with the most traction, so you keep moving. :)

Do you think there'd be a market for a used Quaife ATB?
Let's say someone removed the Quaife from their car and reinstated the open diff, and had a good used Quaife ATB in a box. What might that hypothetically be worth?

Well the simple option would be to take the complete diff off both cars and just swap them.
The more complicated option would be to take the Quaife out of the diff casing, put the open diff back in, then take the open diff out of the other car and put the Quaife in.
I'm tempted to go for option 2 and put the Quaife in my 330i, but i'm not sure the 330 really needs it for the way i drive it...
