ASC+T was introduced in 91 on 8ers and 7ers. ASC was available before.

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...
