    PSM Question

    This is my first P-car with PSM. I've thrown it pretty hard into some turns but have no indication that the PSM is cutting in. Are you suppose to get an indication on any of the displays that PSM is "helping". If not, how do you know if your butt is being salvaged.

    Re: PSM Question

    throw it harder! takes a lot before the "computers" step in

    Re: PSM Question

    PSM is a lot less intrusive than other electronic stability systems. There is a PSM indicator in the dash that lights up but usually when you get it to come on you have other things to focus on so you can miss it.
    Try flooring it in first gear on a damp asfalt and notice how the PSM steps in to kill the throttle for example. Even better if you have the steering turned.

    Re: PSM Question

    I felt the same, as was pointed out to me, at slower speeds the PSM is very slow to intervene, even less so of course with Sport selected. When you need it however at higher sppeds, I have found it to be there very quickly, much much better than on my XK8

    Re: PSM Question

    Thank you all for your comments. I'll give the wet asphalt experiment a try.

    ... but make sure that PSE is set to the open position, so that your neighbor really gets the full benefit!

    It has to be a lawn with large flower beds around it, which you can use as a run-out zone.

    Re: PSM Question

    Hmmmmm, neighbors lawn, yea, that's the ticket

    You're not trying hard enough.
    Take a 100* curve at around 100 mph and you'll get your PSM working.

    Re: PSM Question

    R.C. for you a 100 degree curve at 100mph must be a real yawner after 300+ klicks
