    This is specifically for a pre FL S3 (my car) with with generation 2 Haldex. Manual box.

    I can’t figure out how ESP works. The car has so much mechanical grip with Michelin PS3’s. Dry and wet. Does it only work when the light dash flashes? Or is it working all the time? Is it cutting power if it detects slip? What will happen if I turn it off?

    Any insight is appreciated.

    As above, make sure you click on the ‘transverse system’ as we have the Haldex Coupling

    Cheers. I also read the letter from Haldex. I understand how the system works on it’s own, but don’t quite understand how the ESP integrates?

    There must be a esp hack like the F1 mclaren where Mika hakien (bad spelling) had 2 brake pedals like a tractor and could apply more brakes to the inner wheels hooking the car round hehe

    The ESP is switched on all the time. It only flashes on the dash lamp when wheel slip is detected and corrections are made by braking an individual wheel or reducing throttle input.
    Should explain this in the Owners Manual if you have one. Used to be be a simple explanation on Audi’s sales website as well, maybe still on there for the latest 8V version.

    Just had a quick look at my bible, not sure if it’s this, but an interesting read. [​IMG]
