    No button = no ESP

    The earlier ones didn't come with ESP as standard chap so you might not have it.

    If it's the same as my a3 its the ESP button above the radio, just press it in.

    This is correct, if you have an early 99 S3, then you have no ESP. You also have an analogue clock in your dash instead of a digital one.
