Why Do This Mod?
Because there are times when the ESP doesn't know best.
Apart from clowning around in empty snow filled car parks, there are sensible
reasons as to why turning the ESP off would help. Here is the one that I discovered.
My drive was only on a slight slope but it took 10 minutes to get up it into the garage.
As soon as the wheels slipped, the ESP cut the power, you need the wheel spin to eat
through the snow and ice to reach the road below it.
It is very important that you realise that following this guide will also turn off ABS.
It is purely intended for getting out of snow and ice or running on a dyno.
Of course, having a little play in an empty snowy car park is ok.
It is not recommended for every day driving. The safety systems are there to help you.
