I personally drive with the nannies on because even though I've been driving cars without traction control/DSC for over 20 years all have been front wheel drive with the exception of one. That one car just happened to be a V8 but nowhere near as powerful as this M3. I can drive but am not the Stig and would love to keep enjoying the car at the limit of my ability and common sense. I'm reasonably confident I'd catch most mistakes with DSC defeated but what if I don't. I like to drive spirited like everyone else but we're all on public roads.
