    For the short change it costs and the fact it supposedly cannot be retroinstalled, it sounds well worth it. Has anyone had any experience with it on a 4motion? Is it just something else that could go wrong? I've read threads where people have used it on their fwd passats, but nothing so far on...

    Greetings! I just got back from running some packages up to UPS (in an expeditious manner) and had a chance to do a little bit of spirited driving around town. One thing that really impressed me was how great of a job ESP does at not letting the driver really screw things up. I pushed the car...

    Perfect day for snowboarding in NY today. On the way home, 28 degrees and rain put a thick layer of freezing slush on the Northway. I was doing 65 (because I'm stupid) when a tractor trailer and some other traffic was merging onto the freeway. The road was straight and wide, so I sped up to...

    Hey all, So I'm driving the usual hell commute here in Atlanta and I notice my ABS and ESP lights are lit up. I called the dealer and the service manager informed me that my brakes just got too hot and set the sensor off. Anyone else ever had this? Anything to worry about? Thanks in advance...

    There was a thread like this way back. I searched the web and came up ASR (Anti-Slip Regulation)(not available with V6 4MOTION) EDL (Electronic Differential Lock) ESP (Electronic Stabilization Program) As I recall, ESP was an option starting with 2001.5 cars. Someone...

    I'm considering buying a new 4Motion sedan. Is ESP worth the money. It's not a lot of money if I'm already dropping $30K but I want to understand if it is actually of any value. I am enjoying reading all your posts. Thanks Paul

    Hi all, A few weeks ago on one of those cold NY nights, (not the really cold, but the 30 degree cold) my ABS / ESP lights came on in the dash. I couldnt figure it out, but when I did test the brakes, the ABS was not working at all. The next morning it was magically working again, but I...

    In the excitement of the day, I overlooked the fact that the car I bought did not have the $280 ESP -- which would have been a deal-breaker, had I realized it in time. So... it something that can be added by the dealership with reasonable expectations for being right? Tks Nate
