    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 3.2 V6

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 000

    Default

    I thought ESP was standard on the V6, and that it was a saftey feature to give you a hand if you lose the back end.

    It's on the missus Astra coupe. No sport button though. As Mark says it kicks in when the tyres are experiencing different levels of grip. A safety feature rather than a performance thing.

    It's on her new motor too.

    For VX ESP read Mercedes ESC. From Wilpedia

    ESC compares the driver's intended direction in steering and braking inputs, to the vehicle's response, via lateral acceleration, rotation (yaw) and individual wheel speeds. ESC then brakes individual front or rear wheels and/or reduces excess engine power as needed to help correct understeer (plowing) or oversteer (fishtailing). ESC also integrates all-speed traction control, which senses drive-wheel slip under acceleration and individually brakes the slipping wheel or wheels, and/or reduces excess engine power, until control is regained. ESC cannot override a car's physical limits. If a driver pushes the possibilities of the car's chassis and ESC too far, ESC cannot prevent a crash. It is a tool to help the driver maintain control.

    ESC combines anti-lock brakes, traction control and yaw control (yaw is spin around the vertical axis).

    Got it on my Signum, great bit of technology, helps you go round corners if you misread the road.

    No sport button though
