I understand the 2008 S5 didn't come with a sport differential option. Is it possible to buy one for an 09+ and swap it into my 08? In my simple mind I don't see a reason why this wouldn't work.

Anyone done this? Or conversely, anyone care to edumakate me on why this wouldn't work?

imho - don't go there, even if it is a nice idea.
Is is much more complex than just the diff.
It integrates into a modified steering rack as well.
Plus presuamably a load of software to control it all.

Would be cheaper to part exchange yours for a later one with it fitted tbh.
And if you do, try to get one with the Dynamic steering too, really makes the package.

Ah, so the steering rack is different as well? Perhaps I should just look at the StaSis Diff instead. Thanks for the input!
