In Reply to: ASC vs ASC+T? posted by Hans Lain on October 16, 2001 at 18:05:02:
The difference is that the traction control also employs the brakes to keep the car in control under 40 km/h, whereas 'simple' ASC only uses the throttle.
The Bentley objections originate from the fact that ASC+T further complicates the braking system and thus easier for morons (backspaces) to temper with it (and then sue BMW for that).
I bleed my brakes as always and I'm happy with the results.
One more thing : certain publications advise of a "ASC+T filter" that needs to be replaced on Insp II, but I couldn't find anyone in the area to know about this filter.
My vehicle has ASC, but what is ASC+T and how do you know if your vehicle has it?
Bently manual advises against people doign their own brake work on vehicles equipped with ASC+T...
