Could you advise a compatible diff?
Wavetrac told that they did not have diff for that model yet.
Quaife told that I should take out my open diff, open and measure it. They would advice then appropriate diff version.

Hi Nikolai,

You're welcome.
Yes, it's not ideal for anyone, but it's the only way to know for sure. There is no way to confidently predict which Quaife LSD your differential will accept. We must wait until a customer is willing to disassemble their differential (or send it to us), or maybe if there is enough demand in the future we will buy one to see for ourselves.
It could be the same as the SLC 450... we don't know (Quaife just publish the info we give them, they don't really know anything about what their units fit, they are just the manufacturer).
Regards, James

Mercedes offers one, look up the part number for a car that has the Dynamic Handling package. It comes standard with a mechanical limited slip.

Probably have to talk to your dealer and ask them what that part is. It looks like it is either the rear subframe or the rear diff.

Hello Nikolai,



i am sorry but the LSD is exclusive for Mercedes AMG.

We are srictly advised not to sell any LSD to customers.



The LSD can only bought at a local mercedes dealer.

Why not just get the OEM AMG LSD from a dealer, even if you have it installed elsewhere? I had ZERO desire for the stupid faux-suede material on the steering wheel, but decided to make that concession in order to have the AMG handling package with LSD on my 43.

The dealer upgrade price in Russia is not adequate. Diff with the case, cardan and 2 half-axis replacement. It is around $10000.
