P30 question

In reading the description of the P30 package for newer SLKs, I noted that it included LSD. I don't think that LSD was part of the 2008 P30 package, was it?

If not, would it be a worthwhile addition?

Not sure if a SLK55 itself makes financial sense, but it sure is a lot of fun!

I don't believe the 2008 SLK55 P30 comes with the LSD. I added a Quaife unit and have found it has helped both the off the line acceleration and the wheelspin/controllability in corners (particularly in the wet when I had the OEM Pirellis). I had it installed at TTM in Long Island (thanks Bruce) and have had no regrets. Total including install and seals/Motul was around $1900.
