I ask because I am getting a control system failure message after spinning the wheels trying to get out of snow, with DSC/DTC fully deactivated.
A BMW system can typically reset after excessive spinning, once used on a decent surface again. Not sure how much distance is required but sure someone who's had it happen will confirm. My Passat would reset after a few metres, on the next start up.

Brother in law's XJ had to be recovered after the same thing happened, wouldn't allow a restart.
