So to answer your question, he is playing the role that SOME people don't play on here, which is helping people to the best of his abilities
That's fine, and I have absolutely no beef with that. If his comments seemed normal to you, that's great. But in our last exchange he was quoting exact numbers. Now there are supposedly XX units available. I think I'm allowed to ask for full disclosure here.

A 75% price drop in BMW OEM M Performance part wound't have any financial gain for anyone but the forum members.
Of course, but please see my comment above.

I don't honestly think ECS knows what they have.
So ECS doesn't know what they have, but you just told us last night what they have. I'm confused.

I simply came into this thread stating that it was NOT IMPOSSIBLE to still purchase them. And you decided to chime in to the contrary. Lo and behold, there are some available, which you are promoting, that are marked up.

Do I need to draw a picture?
THE MARK UP BY ECS WASNT A MARK UP. IT WAS A PRICING ERROR THAT OCCURED. The current price is what it was supposed to originally be. IT IS STILL possible to buy. Like I said I called and literally said they have a shipment of 3x. Why don't you call and find out for yourself? You can answer all your own questions.
Yep. This was the price I was quoted 2 weeks ago. The pricing error was not reflecting the shipping cost from Germany.

Everyone eventually figured that out. I'm not really concerned about the availability, and never was. That was other people lol.

I'm just playing devils advocate to the info "others" were providing.
Were all just trying to find and share as much info as possibly from sources we have access to. Nothing more.

So some are paying $455 but plus costs, its about $640. I bought mine initially when the price first dropped from ECS and payed the same total after tax/shipping. So it looks like it's a wash.

Side note, here is what it looks like installed...wow it looks like a...rear diff...

Does a 328i and a 335i look different from the front? It's what is underneath that counts.

Even my Quaife and OEM BMW do not look different as it's in a BMW pumpkin.
Not at all, but people love pictures.

Again more beer induced sarcasm. I'm done posting for the night.

I am hearing that quite a few LSDs shipped out by ECS late last week were damaged and leaking fluid all over the place.

Might want to refuse shipment if your box comes in looking trashed and soaked in fluid.

More damaged here
