My Ride: 05 M3 ZCP

I know that the ZCP is different in that you can press the button on the steering wheel to tone everything down, but I'm wondering if anybody can describe exactly how both M3's more specifically function.
No, the M3's DSC is off or on.

The ZCP's M-Track mode allows slightly (and I mean VERY slightly) more wheelspin and a little more sliding of the car before getting involved. Honestly, the wheelspin is almost the same as full DSC.

I've read in the past of people trying to put the ZCP DSC system in non-ZCP cars (specifically M3s, not other BMWs)... it didn't work for them either.

Its a waste of time and money to even try it. You'll learn more, faster, with DSC completely off.
