Just got back from Saturn of Highlands Ranch. There IS a competion package, although no pricing on it yet. Looks like it will be priced out early March. THE LSD PN is 5558920, and employee cost is around 1400.00. Just thought you all would want to know.......

I went to the dealer two fridays ago and looked at a 05 RL with recaro seats and the salesman said they order all there 05's with LSD's for safety purposes.

don't know if it's true or not he said the one I was looking at had it.
he said they can't keep them on the lot.

what exatly is LSD...

what exactly is LSD i know its limited slip differential and it gives you better traction. But for $1300 is it really worth it. Is it like AWD, does it give you that good of traction when you take off or take turns...???

Basically, it helps prevents "one-wheel peel" & aids cornering traction. It's something this car is in dire need of.

There are a number of us that are going to spend much more then 1300 to have one installed on our '04s. If that gives you a hint on how important it is.

We're positive it's a torsen? That's not a bad deal, if that price includes labor for them to install the whole package.
