I see what your saying but why have the button? It like having the M button on an M5 (goes from 400bhp to 500bhp). Surely they'd insure you, worst case senario e.g. 500bhp not 400bhp as with traction on traction off.... I may be wrong, but thats my 2 cents worth.r32hoc said:Im sure it logs every time you turn it off so if you have a bump with it off and its your fault the insurance will check every thing to get out of paying, and it could land you with a big bill!!!!

still like to feel the car slide, and control it, keeps you on your toes for when it happens for real
And me:driver: Like you, I don't turn it off either except on trackdays.Plodd said:I am probably more experienced than most of you and have had more 'on road' advanced training and I don't have a problem with the ESP and wouldn't ever consider turning it off on the road. I am not saying I am a better driver than any of you (wouldn't ever make assumptions like that) but even 'spirited' road driving shouldn't have it kicking in all the time, if it does your driving style could probably do with some fettling. Less haste more speed and all that.
Not trying to start an argument here and before you all call me a boring old git I do drive/ride much faster on the public road than any of you would (I hope) and all legally.
