completely Turn off All traction control

Have No idea if this has been brought up, but the 135i does come with a , feature to completely turn off TC. Its really easy to do, and if you like drifting, or absolute want ever lb out torque at your calling, you would be wise to turn off TC all together.

Easy: While vehicle is stopped and running
1. Locate DTC button above hazard lights.
2. (Press and hold) for 3-4 seconds
3. Right away a new Icon will appear on your instrument cluster.
4. Unleash the power

Yep, same as my 330Ci. Hold down the DSC button for 3-4 seconds in my case and you're good to go. :smile:

I would highly recomend making sure you know what you are doing when you do this. There is some serious power with this car, and if you are not familiar with it, it can come back to bite you. Just me saying be careful thats all.

I will have to say I did it once so far in my 700 or so miles and it was fun.

I agree the torque is what will get you. Its frankly unexpected

Speaking of traction control.. the nanny software on the 135i is supposed to be more agressive than other models. With traction control on can you spin the tires at all? If you do a U-turn and hit the gas will it get sideways at all? I think it would be great if the software really is more agressive, so we could leave it on but still have some fun.

The 135i will step the rear end out going around a tight turn whether traction control is on or off. The more you want to rotate, the more pedal you give it. It is very easy to modulate. Nate

Turning off the DSC will active the eDiff, so there will still be some intervention by the computer. The eDiff is supposed to act like a LSD. So it will certainly not save your hide like the DSC will if you do something stupid.

can you turn it fully off on the fly or do you have to be stopped?

Just curious, is there any simple and elegant way to allow the car into starting with DTC and DSC automatically off instead of on? :wink:

I know there isn't a way in my 330i, if you turn it all they way off the minute you stop and turn off the car it resets.

Seems a few billion drivers survived trillions of driving miles without any driving nannys.

My god how do we humans survive?
