DSC versus DTC

The manual says use DTC for snow.. I could only see using that if you need some wheel spin to get up a hill... It seems like DSC would be fine for town snow driving...

Just wondering what you all do in the snow..

I leave the DSC on by default most of the time including in snow. DTC helps if you need to power up a hill or get out of a rut, although with winter tyres and xDrive I don't see the latter ever being an issue.

I agree, but have a look at this link (It's not a X3) but the explanation is helpful. http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...d.php?t=949427
