LSD Option on a Mini!

I was pricing a Mini Cooper S out for my parents, and to my surprise, you can order it up with an LSD as a $350 option!!! It's cheap, too!

Isn't that weird? I wouldn't mind that on our cars. BMW should take a hint from BMW.

Not all sports or sporty cars have it. You dont get one on a G37 unless you get the top model with the 6-speed manual, for example. It's one of those cost saving measures they figure most cusomers would never notice. The Mini is a serious FWD performance car though.
