i was surprised at how dramatically the car responded with dsc off. when on, my car would enter a slight skid, cut power to the wheels and i would regain traction. i'm not sure what happened with dsc off, inputs please!
Yup, take a trip to the dealer and have them disable your DSC button.
This is gonna be a full blown flaming, NEVER, EVER admit this on an open forum again!!!
There are so many threads on peeps putting their M3's into trees, guardrails, curbs... That button is only of professional drivers, like myself.
