DSC light

With DSC fully on...will there be times when the system intervenes but does not flash on the cluster? Just finished break-in and gave it a couple of WOT pulls and didn't see anything light up. Acceleration felt good but maybe a bit more subdued than I expected? This is with winter tires on a 37 degree day so I expected a bit of drama. Also, will it show up on the HUD?

It's also possible you were looking at the road and didn't notice it? It flashes and goes away rather quickly

I have that problem too. I see the light flash a lot on videos but I can never personally catch it myself so...

Who knows o.O

Yes.

There have been many instances where I've felt DSC intervention without seeing the light blink in the cluster.

the DSC is extremely intrusive. especially in the winter because the tires are rocks....i wish i had the balls to drive with traction control off. i mean whats the worst that could happen accelerating in a straight line?
