Do you have DSC?

I am about to submit final spec and this is the only option that I am undecided on. I have scrolled through pages upon pages of information on DSC and still can't decide.

Yup, got it on mine! The only downside I can think of is when I am feeling frisky! The DSC cuts in and my :) goes to :( while I frantically look to shut the DSC off! It is great to have in crappy weather!

Get it!

I have it but lately I find myself flipping the switch more often ... Since my tires are almost gone, sliding is easier and more fun (with DSC turned off) :D :D

I have a MCSC due around the same time as yours. I had ASC on my cooper and DSC on my S and did not notice all that much of a difference. I am not sure what sort of a difference the LSD will make. I am personally not getting it this time, not sure if it worth the extra expense.

That is just my opinion, and the choice is your in the end. Could you spend the difference somewhere else!

Does anyone have opinions on leaving DSC on in really slick snow conditions?

I was driving a few weeks ago on the roads before the plows had come through and left it on most of the time, I noticed that it was engaged pretty much full-time, and because of that I disabled it before it hit a pretty steep hill because I was worried that it would put on the brakes and kill my momentum to the point that I wouldn't be able to get up the hill... any thoughts?

Right or wrong my instincts would probably have led me to do the same thing.
