    It does seem to be a little much. And I'm a guy that loves all the cool little wizbang gadgets that come out. But I'll tell you what I don't like, freaking traction control. I turn that crap off every time I get in the car. Makes my poor Mini bounce around wayyyy too much when I hit a bump in the road.

    Hasn't someone come up with wizbang gadget to defeat it on R56 MINIs? I have one on my R53 that sets the default to off. I can turn it on when I want. I've done that maybe 3 times since December 2005. :D Hates them nanny's. :incazzato:

    I dunno, but I do like the use of wizbang. Its easy enough to turn off after I start the car so no biggie. But traction control is what screwed me when I wrecked my TT. Had it not engaged I could have pulled out of the spin.

    Traction control just allows people that have no business out in bad weather think they can drive though anything.

    It's a bane for those that actually learned how to control a car. I hates it.
