    Firstly sorry for yet another MX-5 thread...

    Can someone point me in the direction of info on what mk2 MX5s had an LSD?

    I know the 1.8 Sport does but I'm not too sure on the range of "special editions" Nevada, Acrtic etc.

    Also does the LSD make a massive difference on your average B-Road shenanigans or will you only start to notice the difference on track?

    Thanks :)

    I wouldn't worry too much about the LSD. Buy on condition and an OEM Torsen LSD can be had for £250~ and fitting is £100 at a decent independant.

    Is the 6 Speed gearbox not meant to be made out of chocolate? A friend of mine has killed a fair few!
