asc vs dsc?

My 2002 325ci has Asc and my old mkv gti had esp which was awesome but noticed some e46s have Dsc?


So what's the difference with Asc and Dsc?

DSC is a newer version of ASC traction control. Basically ASC only brakes the rear wheels during straight line acceleration to keep the wheels from spinning and losing traction. DSC combines those features with additional ability to individual brake each of the 4 wheels is slippage (oversteer/understeer) is sensed in a corner to bring you back in line.

Nope. ASC simply cuts throttle.

Its a traditional traction control system and nothing more.
And it works at any given point, not just in a straight line.
