I've been breaking in the engine mostly in the 500-3000 rpm range. My commute is great for this. Back roads/Expressway/City/Stop and Go.

Lately I've been shifting in the Step manual mode to get some time in the 3000 to 4500 rpm range. Guess I pushed it a little hard this AM in first. DSC flashed for a few seconds and then all was well. :thumb:

Didn't stand on it but I guess I was too aggressive. :angel: Damn I love this car! :bigpimp:

I may be mistaken here, but that may have been the icon telling you to shift. I have had that come on a couple times, also in steptronic, and primarily when accelerating quickly or going toward 4500rpms. I don't recall it during any particularly aggressive cornering when you would expect the DSC to kick in.

just a thought.

Inside tire will lift and spin on my Xi

On left hand turns at say a T intersection I can get my front left tire to lift up enough from the crown of the road, my turning the wheel and enough gas to activate the DSC-X in my AWD 325Xi.

when I blast through my favorite back road, I must trigger the damned DSC around every corner. the road requires a lot of focus and attention so if I've left it on, it stays on until I get through the road. sometimes I slow down (breaking the rhythm) and switch it off. the car handles so much better when you can swing the rear end around a little. DSC prevents this.
