    you only have traction control on the Y plate, ESP came in from 2002, possibly 2001 51 plate.

    I also have a Y plate coupe turbo

    Electronic Stability Programme,

    just basically if the car feels the car try to spin out or loose stability it corrects it by braking/cutting/increasing power to a side/wheel etc. (or something like that, thats the basic idea)

    You don't have it, but more than likely you have got TC. The TC light will turn on when you first start the car then go out a few seconds later......what am I saying, on the 1.8 it's switchable, so the easiest way to check is look for the button by the gear stick! lol

    ESP was listed as an option for 2002 Sri's, so there might be an oh so slim posibility that you do. Apart from stuffing it into a corner at a great rate of knots in the hope that it cuts in (if you have it), just assume you don't
