    S3 Haldex

    Hi,
    I have just bought a 2007 S3 and taking it to B'thorpe next week. If I switch the ESP off, does the car then become front wheel drive only, ie no Haldex working. Thanks a lot.

    I'm going to be at Brunters on the 28th - in answer to your question...no, it'll only turn Traction control off....if the front loses grip then it'll transfer some of the power to the back wheels.
