"DSC" button is now called "DSC off" button

Makes a lot of sense actually since pressing it deactivates DSC.

This must be a change for 2007 model year cars.

You can see it here on Habib's car in Holland:



I wonder how many "man hours" at BMW went into this enhancement

2005 E60 Blue Onyx/Caramel/Light Figured Ash M5 (worst car I ever owned)
2007 E90 Montego Blue/Black Alpina D3 (sublime)
2015 White/Saddle Brown Alpina XD3 BiTurbo.. omg!!!

No, this remains the same. Yours may be different since RHD has a totally different button configuration to LHD.

Wow, hadn't noticed that yet. I wonder what else might be different in the 2007 model.

Now I need to find the DSC ON button first before I try the DSC Off button.

HOW DO I PUT DSC BACK ON THEN?!!!!









(it really should read "DSC off/on" or maybe "push in case of fun!")

All the best,
