          Looking at £999 fitted from Courts. Wont give you any extra bhp, will make it better for the car getting the power you car already has to the ground and make it smoother.

            hmmm i cant be too sure about that one mate, check out the courtenay website it tells you on there and im sure thorneys do it at the same price as courts not sure about regal or DAP you would have to ask them mate

                  LSD is a very worthwhile mod, transforms the way the car drives

                    Agreed

                    I have a Quaiffe ATB LSD fitted to the Vectra VXR.

                    It pulls the car INTO the apex on corners, and provides loads more stability at high speed corners, getting the power to the road.

                    I didnt find it especially better at 0-60 sprints though (poss due to the weight of the car) as it seems to just spin up both wheels, instead of one.. but I havent practiced enough at this yet

                    However, if you like fast cornering.. the LSD is great ... but you will have to adopt a different driving style to get the best out of it

                            On your private test track though eh dtox, you wouldn't really see the traction light when driving normally on the queens highways would you .
