In Reply to: ASC+T Brake Question posted by Gary M on December 11, 2000 at 22:32:42:

I don't think ASC was ever offered in the US without the Traction control.

It works like this :
- under 40km/h what works is the Traction control, by braking the spinning wheel(s). You can try that by launching the car.
- above that, spinning is regulated by means of limiting the fuel injection. You can try that on snow - keep a constant speed, lift off the throttle and try to give it gas again - you'll see the engine and the car speed will stay low, at the level they were after you lifted off.


How do I know if I have a brake system with ASC+T? I know I have ASC, but I'm not sure about the +T. I have a 1993 525i. TIA.
