    TC Button design?

    Just got another TC switch from someone in Greece. Didn't think much of it as I was buying it along with some other gunmetal dash bits, ashtray, TC panel and button and gear stick surround. Thought it might come in handy at some point.

    Anyway they arrive this morning and the first thing I notice is that it's different that mine. I bought mine from Vx about 6-10 months ago to do the TC switchable mod, the symbol on it is a cross section of a tyre with TC inside it. However the one from Greece is the same symbol you see on the dash when the TC is switched off.

    Just curious but has anyone else seen this style of switch? or is it restricted to our continental cousins?

    The rear of the switch is the same BTW. I'll just swap the top section over I think as I converted mine to light up blue with an LED.

    The Triangle with the slidey car in is an ESP Switch, got 1 on mine from a GSI.

    Might be used on all later models.

    Could this be a bit of variety on what you can actually switch off hre?

    I know we can switch off the TC but not the ESP via a switch, but are any other countries different?

    Or is it just that in Greece, the initials TC don't mean anything to do with tration control!

    My Astra Sport has the (TC) sign on the button. Mine is an old one though. It's an S reg.
