Hi all new owner here 1995 540i with a quick question;The po told me it was necessary to turn off the asc because one of the speed sensors was bad and with it switched on {light off} it behaves like a 4 wheel drive does on dry pavement.With it switched off it drives fine but seems to change gears late?? Does the wheel speed sensor also feed the transmission?

Yes they are linked, just change the wheel speed sensor and all will be fine.its not wise to drive with the ASC off.

You will be fine driving forever if you wish with the ASC off, but it can get a bit hairy in certain conditions...and hang on to the 85 735i, good cars far better built then my E38 and less complicated to work on/fix.

I had a feeling you had one due to: 735540..
