SLK55 Installing P30 Limited Slip into a non P30 car

I have a 2012 SLK55, just trying to find the information needed, it seems that the differential, axles and hubs are all different because of spline count, I imagine I can replace all the parts Diff, Axles, Hubs and it should all fit into my car, the real question is the drive shaft seems to be different but the rubber hub in the back is the same, can anyone tell me the difference in the drive shaft, could I use the one that I have in the car now? Any help would great.

Thanks, Ed

you could always look at this from a different angle - my 2005 SLK55 has got a quaiffe lsd, which I am given to understand is a very good unit

Yes, but I may have the opportunity to get all the parts Diff, Axle, Hubs for the same price as just the part Wavetech or Qualfi and then I would have pull the diff. apart and install it, this way I could just pull out the parts and swap them. What do you think.
