Any 7 that I have tested is not done on the rollers as I say that they all have LSD's. Not had one fail other than advisories that the handbrakes are not up to much.


One time the garage did say that their equipment could handle cars with LSD's to which I replied that it may well handle a road car but are they willing to take the chance that its not going to damage the one in a 7 which has been modified to work with a car 1/3rd of the weight that the dif was designed for. Oh and by the way a new LSD will cost about £1000 and ZF dont make the plate type difs any longer!


Never had the conversation again!
