Hi, any one suffered with over sensitive ESP before?
I have a GSI turbo and when attacking a sweeping bend at say 50/60mph, if I apply a little throttle even in top gear the ESP light flashes & power is cut. I'm sure the car isn't understeering, this is my 2nd GSI & I'm sure my 1st didn't behave like this unless under hard throttle in say 2nd or 3rd. It is annoying because it means I can't power out. As I've said it does it even with a small throttle change in top gear.
I was thinking it might be a faulty YAW sensor? Don't know where its fitted though or how much they cost! The only other option is it doesn't like the front tyres........brand new Fulda tyres on the car when I bought it a few weeks ago?? Still wearing the factory rears though treads ok.
Any thoughts appreciated!
