my 2,3l includes TCS & DSC by default (imported from Finland). I can turn off the DSC with a button, but the TCS cannot be switched off.

IMHO TCS & DSC could be turned on/off both together by that single button.
That's what dealer explained to me. (I also have 2.3 imported from Finland,

Yes, the manual explains this also: TCS goes off together with DSC when you press that button.

Yeah - I have it on my car now and while it's not necessary, I do like it (and it can be fun once you learn how to manipulate it). Except for the accursed engine reduction. Does the '6 equipped with DSC reduce the enging power when it feels it's necessary?

TCS uses engine reduction, I don't think the DSC does, though. Never had it happen on me anyway.

Hi you guys... I've tested my TCS two days ago because I had the impression it was not working so good. I starts to work for my car a bit on the late side... I don't know if that is normal? I like it more than when I would start to work to early... think that the setup in my car is good for a sporty saloon:D

The only thing we had was that we once lost traction in second gear (wet +310Nm) with full accerleration and the TCS did not grip in. Is this because the speed was to high... 30 to 40km/h?

If you switch off the DCS the TCS is also switched off... you see a difference with or without DCS

Don't make the mistake of believing that TCS means you will never loose traction. You will. TCS cannot see the difference between traction lost and plain accelerating on dry road unless the left and right wheels don't have the same traction.

So...you can actually spin quite a lot without ever seeing the TCS kick in. But when it does, it works just fine...
