Help me with this SportX.

Hi all.

As i wrote before im about to go down to germany and pick up a SportX. Every paper is in orden and the car looks and feels legit from judging on the papers. But there is one thing that i still havent figured out... If this car is equipped wit the LSD. I asked the seller but he do not know. Is there anything you people can help me out with by looking on these papers?

Here are all images from the dealer aswell. Sorry for many pictures but want a last second opinion if this car is worth buying.

The price is: 8 700$ / 7000euros
Milage: 43 500
Year: 2004

How to tell if my IS300 has LSD?
Look at the sticker on your driver door sill/jamb, look for the area that reads "A/TM"
You'll see numbers such as B02A, B02B, B02C
A=no LSD
B,C = LSD
If you are still unsure, call 1800 25 LEXUS and ask them to look up your VIN and they can tell you what options it came equipped it from the factory.

If you bought your car second hand, there is a possibility the owner of a non-LSD IS300 swapped in a factory LSD, if this is not disclosed, it makes things a bit more challenging.
Here are pics and info on how to distinguish the two by looking at the gears;
https://my.is/forums/showthread.php?p...68#post3637468

The methods of doing a burn out and checking if there are one or two tire marks / jacking up the car and spinning the wheels are somewhat debated and I am unsure if this is a valid way of determining if your car has lsd or not.
