Sorry if this is covered elsewhere but I can't seem to find it.
Does the Cooper come standard with any kind of traction control at all. I know the S comes with a the ASC + T but I presumed that is a bit fancier than just stopping the wheels spinning if it is a bit slippery in patches.

DSC isn't really traction control, in the sense it brakes individual wheels as the car starts to slide. Traction control moderates the power to the driven wheels. Not an expert but they are different I think. I have a Cooper D and don't think I need traction control, so not sure if I would spec it on a new car if that was what you were thinking about.
