    According to the brochure, facelifts still had TC across the range (except the 1.8) but I'm sure I've read posts where people seemed to think the facelifts had TC dropped due to the 'better' suspension.

    I'm just going by the brochure, which could be wrong!

    Yeah, that's what I thought - cheers. I was sure I'd read lots about people saying that the facelift didn't have TC.

    i asked a mate at the local dealer after torque steering down the road in all directions , it was removed on the facelift and corrected on the 2nd brochure

    the old tools off for a service monday and they are going to fully check all the steering etc , as the ins company are saying everything is ok and they are not willing to check it again , i feel they have a shock coming !!!!

    TC only standard on V6 models both Petrol and Diesel on cars built from October 24th 2005. Every other model has it as a costed option.

    Mine does not have TC, and to be honest in many ways I am glad, I would ratehr have a feeling for the wheels and feed the throttle rather than it telling me what to do.

    I hate the TC on my Audi, pain in the ****!!

    It depends on how intrusive it is, the Monaro is completely unobtrusive, it just about kicks in when the car is sideways, BMW is really intrusive - wont let you do anything even when its 'switched off'.
