abs is not defeatable. always on.
i drive without this dsc nonsense. in my mind it is more dangerous on than off, unless you just cannot drive at all.
my car (330i PP) has only 235 horse, and is completely manageable with throttle. the tires on the back of this thing are 255 wide, way wider than the capability of the car to break traction in an unrecoverable way. it initially understeers for gods sake.
the dsc cuts off fuel unexpectedly, it takes only some bumps on one of the rears and this *(^&ing electronic minder thinks i need help. i don't. this evil thing stalls me on intersections, just when i need some power.
there is a good reason why i did not shell out more than 40 large on a benz: it is a dog without handling, made for sleepy old farts who like to sit on dead cows, surrounded by dead trees. they probably need the dsc.
sorry, but it touches a raw nerve...
