How do I Turn off my traction control?

Is there a way to turn off my traction control in my BMW 328 LCI?

Push once, DTC interference reduced (DTC yellow light should show up in monitor). Hold button down for 5 secs, nannies all off.

Have you tried reading your owners manual?

yes, it's next to the door locking button, it says DTC and the hazard light is right above the lock button and DTC. Hold for 3 seconds and your car makes a chime noise to let you know its completely disabled. It is a sign of a circle with a hazard triangle with a ! in it. just be careful, our 328i's don't really have that good of a drifting system/ differential for that matter

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

Try the DTC setting first, as you have not used either setting from what it seems, the nanny go bye bye mode may lead to some unexpected behavior. Behind all the technology, all BMW's have a monster just waiting to get out!
