electronic diff is fancy words for advanced ABS, to simulate the GTI PP "haldex wunder-diff" that everyone raves about. It's not an actual mechanical diff.

Yeah you can activate it but wear on your pads may increase due it dragging and inside pad on aggressive cornering. All depends on how much you toss your car around.
Hers: 2015 Passat SEL (NOS) w/ VW fix and Malone Stage 2.
His: 2017 Alltrack SE, waiting for TSI to TDI conversion kits to be released.
