Got my 135i :D

Space gray, 2009, 45k miles (75k km) on it. Clean title.

M-Sport, Premium & Sports package and NOTHING else. No comfort access, no parking sensors, no cold weather package.
AFE dual cone intake
RPI quad exhaust
TurboTuner chip inline with the TMAP sensor
Carbon Fiber mirror covers, splitter, diffuser and trunk lip spoiler.
H&R Sport springs
Koni Shocks.
6 spd manual.

I just got it 3 weeks ago. Already starting to work on it. From the PPI, it had low boost codes (probably a result of the TurboTuner), misfire in cyl 1 (fixed by PO before delivery - new coil+plug) and a little bit of paint damage on the front and rear bumpers.

I went for a spark plug change across the first 3 banks today since I had another misfire in cyl 3. Found out that the valve cover gasket is seeping oil slightly into cyl 3, so that's a weekend project down the road. Plugs were worn out badly. Car runs great now.

Having a lot of fun, but miss the LSD in my E36 M3 for sure. Turbo wastegate rattle is irritating. When a car wants to be luxurious, it shouldn't feel raw. If it feels raw, it shouldn't be luxurious. This car is neither luxurious nor raw - and I'm not sure I like that. Suffers from irritating build quality issues - stupid interior trim rattles.

In a lot of ways, this car made me want WRX STi a lot more. More trackable - I'm in California - and better interior build quality. Just a little uglier.

Anyways, I'm on board. Tell me of things I should look out for and what I should do with my car! Any ideas on how I can get an LSD in here without shelling out more than $3500?
