How do you know if you have TCS?

Well i hear the 328is is supposed to have TCS.... how would i know if i have it mines a 1996....

If i release the clutch on 4000rpm in first ... not much happens... a little spin at the beginning but then no more tire sound.... I dont see any switch for TCS though...

SO how do i exactly know?

also do i have ASC ... i have a fuse for it but i wanna make sure ... How does this ASC help?

I took a 90 degree turn going 45 mph ... did it go off then? tires were screeching.. but it TOOK IT!

theres a button right above the shifter where the heated seat buttons are..if u see ASC there then u have it..

if u launch at 4k..and u hear a bit of squeeling..im guessing u have good tires...do u see a light flash on ur dash while they;re spinning?

No ASC or TCS button.......... and about the squealing ... it wasnt going anywhere .... (maybe they were spinning so fast they didnt make sound) my clutch is strong...Michelin Energy tires on dry

No flashing lights........ actually ... i never looked to see while tearing out... thats something to check...


BUT i have the Fuse for ASC... its there and the key says ASC, ABS
