    Default Traction Control

    Any Ideas if TC can be retro fitted.

    If it doesn't have it at all - like the 1.8s didn't - then no, waay too complaicted and expensive.

    If you have it but mean the button to turn it off, then it's hit and miss as to whether the button will work.

    Ah, it's a 2008 model I see from your profile. It should have TC. It was only the very early facelifts that didn't have it.

    Mine doesn't have it. 2008MY SRi cdti. I think T.C. comes only as part of the ESP.

    Standard on the V6s but extra cost option on all the others.

    Ah right, I thought it had been reintroduced across the facelift range (bar the 1.8).

    No. the provision of TC on EARLY facelifts was the same as on pre-facelifts (all except 1.8). Later facelifts only have TC as part of the ESP option, only fitted as standard on V6-engined Vectras. VX for some reason believed that handling was SO improved on the facelift it rendered TC as standard as unnecessary on all except the V6's.

    With the Insignia ESP (including TC) will come as standard across the range. About time too, why should proven safety essentials be restricted to the biggest engines? I well remember spinning my wheels like billy-oh in the rain in my previous 1.8.

    Ah, gotcha - it's the opposite way round to what I was thinking.

    I've got TC but it's about as much use as a chocolate fireguard.
