Hi,

Can someone please explain what exactly the ESP control does for me, the average awesome 03 W8 tip wagon owner? I have read that some of you folks turn it off in the snow/ice--- hows come?

   Thanks fer yur help.

As much as I know-it controls the wheelspin over the wheels-IE best to keep it on for more control-think if it was turned off in the snow/ice you could do some ice skating & generally a have a gd time!!!

ESP is two programs: traction control and stability control. onboard sensors sense spin and yaw, and if neccessary, will cut power and apply individual brake calipers to correct the direction (attitude) that your car is travelling. it is all to keep yo ass out of the ditch
