    I'm considering importing one of these for the summer. A high want for me is an LSD. I've confirmed that this was an option on the 6spd transmission starting with 2004MY. I'm trying to confirm:
    1) which models (S, or V) came with it?
    2) confirm if it's production started on August 2002?

    Findings so far.
    I've also confirmed the following 2 cars at auction have LSDs:
    - a July 2003 production on vin zzw30-0062430 had an lsd, manual transmission
    -a October 2002 production on vin zzw30-0056337 has LSD on auction sheet, it was a vague note and this was the sequential tranmission, not manual

    Edit:opps, need this moved to "Toyota".

    I think it was an option for 30000 yen, they could install it in any model (V, S, MR-S, B ) so you probably can't find it by the frame number, only to check auction sheet.

    This is screenshot of restyle MR-S brochure (built in 08.2002 or later), LSD is available as extra for every model.

    Thanks man!
    After checking many auction sheets, I've only seen 2 with it. So it's either rare or not often mentioned.
