: Can anyone explain how general driving/torque is affected when turning this feature off? [In my case, I have a 1999 328 w/automatic transmission] I know it prevents wheel spinning from a dead stop, but are their any benefits to leaving it off- seems like people turn it off for time trials. Thanks.

I don't think there's any difference in terms of accelaration with DSC on/off unless the road is slippery from the initial start. That's when the DSC kicks in and regulates the engine input. So if the road condition is dry, then turning DSC/AST off won't benefit any accelaration.
