I'm looking to buy an auto LSD (M98). I don't have access to the sticker on the diff but this seller's door jamb shows this. I was under the impression that B01B is a manual transmission LSD, but it appears to be on an 2002 auto (auto verified by the VIN). Is it a M98 or the manual M85?

Somethings not right with the VIN data then or the stickers been swapped or was input incorrectly. “W55” is a manual transmission. B01B should be a 3.73 LSD diff which is the M85.

Well, one look at the shifter and pedals should tell you that. If you are getting a manual for automatic price, then you win! lol
