Rather than voice what reads like overt threats, just tell them to watch the movie "Pulp fiction". There, bad guys run into worse guys, and the friction gets interesting :)

Looks like I remembered incorrectly. Same light comes on when ABS is disabled by the car's brain as when you turn of both torque control and brake stability control. Not the same thing as tuning...

Oh, the ABS absolutely stops the wheels from turning, briefly. If you look carefully, you may see a series of 6" long rubber stripes left on the road from this.
