stupid question

but can you push the M-mode button while you're moving? So far I've only turned it on/off while the car is stationary. No I did not yet

It's fun to push M on the move, as the mood and temper of the car changes instantly.

of course,
i always push it on the move, and as much as the car does change its temper as stated above. its nothing like when you push the M button in the E60 M5 and 100+hp hits you.

Reason I asked is because when I had my e46 M3 I pushed the sport button once while I was moving and damn it rocked me back and forth for quite a bit.

i was in the snow with my tires slipping (traction control interrupting everything) and pressed the M button; everything activated except it would not disengage traction control (while moving). I had to stop and press the M-button again before it would copmletely turn DSC Off
