Default So...Who's enabled M-Track mode then...

Following the rather succesful thread on enabling M-Track mode:

http://forums.m3cutters.co.uk/showthread.php?t=38098

I thought I would host a poll to see how many have been able to carry out this cool mod.

Please select the option that describes your outcome

I managed to enable M-Track mode and didn't require any LED mods on mine which is a November 2004.

Cheers

Er, I enabled mine, but I don't have the LED and I don't need it (fine using the DSC light and the amber handbrake/ABS one or whatever it is). Can't see which option I should choose...

M track mode is a mode that BMW put on the csl's and CS's it enables traction controll still on but lets you have a lot more play with car before it kicks in its awsome!

It's a two stage affair in the car, M track and then DSC disable.

Your can can be programmed not to have M track mode when you sell it.

Yet strangely the most aggressive gear change on SMG cars can only be used with DSC fully off which lets you know how they are supposed to be driven

More fun with it off altogether.

My m3 was built in january 2003 and registered in march 2003 as one of the first 03 plates. If i look at the speedo cluster up close. I can see the m track symbol on the display. Does this mean that it will have the led bulb in the cluster, to illuminate, if i get m track mode enabled??
