Mein Auto: 2004 X3
DSC Light

A day ago, I must have driven into a curb - both rims are scraped but the tires look sound. The steering is sluggish for a few seconds, and then the DSC light (yellow) comes on and the steering is improved (although not the same as prior to the curb incident). I will take my X3 into the dealership next week, but my question is one of safety. Am I okay to drive for the next few days (I have to put 200 miles on for a Thanksgiving visit)? Any advice would be welcomed.

Happy Thanksgiving.

The only way you'll know if it's safe is to get it checked out. If you hit the curb hard enough to knock the alignment off then the dsc would light up with a fault. You'll have to get it checked to know for sure.
