    you would turn the esp off in the snow, so i have been told. but the main reason to turn it off is when driving hard. if you are a capable driver you turn off the esp, this allows the car to slide a bit. near me i have some concrete roads and when tryin to accelerate hard in the rain the esp cuts the power something chronic to stop the rear end stepping out with it turned off the wheels slip a bit and its more fun to hang it out.

    not sure if your pressures will be the same as i have the 3.2 but i will have a look tomorrow for you

    the esp should be on all the time, you have to physicaly turn it off, when you do that the esp light will illuminate, this signifies its off.

    as for tyre pressures, the figures should be on the inside of the fuel cap and for mine are as follows

    two adults and a bag - front 2.6bar (38psi) - rear 2.0bar (29psi)
    two adults two chidren + full boot - front 2.7bar (39psi) rear 2.4bar (35psi)

    but bare in mind mine is the 3.2 so i am carrying more weight over the front wheels
