Luggage compartment fuse F19 in my manual says it's not used. Engine compartment says it's ABS/ESP. I know these electronic nannys do wonders for keeping people out of trouble, but us older people didn't have this stuff and had to learn how to drive without them good or bad. Now I personally would like to be able to shut off the controls because if I decide to autocross, not in parking lot on a real race track it could cause problems with the brakes getting to hot from the ESP trying to control the car. Also on the street in certain conditions I have felt coming out of corners hard, power being noticable down like the brake was being applied on inside corner, it's kind of a killjoy if ya know what I mean. ABS is ok but still not optimal because when I used to race we were taught threshold braking and if done right you will be able to do better than 99% of ABS sysems out there. Just my 2cents.
