That driving is done in DSC off mode, which disables the traction control, otherwise wheelspin would not be allowed. The electronic differential brake works surprisingly well. I have tried to drift our 116i on a gokart track, and it only failed due to low power and sloppy throttle response. I think I could have told the difference if the car was equipped with a real, mechanical differential brake in a blind test, but the difference is rather small from the driver's seat.
Most drivers without track driving and drifting experience would probably not be able to tell that the LSD is missing.
