In this video you can see the different driving behavior between Traction Mode and DSC/DTC completely OFF in deep snow with BMW's all wheel drive system xDrive. The slope has an incline of 20%. WARNING: DO NOT USE DSC/DTC COMPLETELY OFF ON PUBLIC ROADS!

New Goodyear Ultra Grip RFT Winter tyres in 255/50 R19 107V were fitted on the car in this video.

      Yes turning the all traction nannies off, on a loose surface, for the purposes of achieving a temporary goal is just fine. In this case of a snowy incline with likely ice underneath, u wanna turn off the traction entire, so that the differential doesn't cut power to spinning wheels leaving u with less than 4 powered wheels. Remember, this is a loose surface road (fresh snow) so u want all 4 wheels powered, so with the traction off, this is no longer computer aided AWD but same-rotational speed of wheels 4x4. Just remember to turn on traction when on a paved surface where u want wheels to be spinning at different speeds (e.g. when turning, inner wheel is always at a lower speed)
      Driver knows how modern cars deal with traction and he makes most of it in the snow with traction off

      MendezPresents Most People nowadays do not know, how a car behaves without ESC/ABS and how they have to react, if the car slides or get out of control. That is why I wrote this warning. Furthermore modern cars are a lot heavier than old cars, so they are harder to control in extreme situations. In modern cars you do not even recognize, when ESC is intervening and saves your axx.:) I had the case, that on my E83 X3 xDrive and DSC was broken. No ESC and ABS were working and I had rear wheel drive without traction control. If you drive the car like this, you start realise, how often DSC is intervening in normal driving situations and saves you.

      Reving the engine works (dsc doesn't let you)... tested on a RWD. It made a huge difference. I used to get stuck very often in deep snow, until once while I was driving the car was on TC and was bogging down. Then I suddenly remembered the hill clim buggies and how they go up hill and realized the TC/dsc was keeping wheel spin low, I long pressed the DSC turning it off, and off I went, not even it kept momentum but the car started to accelerate quite well. Just be careful with the steering.
      The theory is friction coefficient decreases with speed between surfaces (wheel spin faster or slower than the car moves) and has a sudden decrease when the surfaces start to slip (breaking traction). But this applies to materials in general. The friction force doesn't depend on surface area of contact. But this doesn't apply to surfaces covered with snow, mud or sand. For these grooves in the tires also matter and for snow and mud apparently you get more traction by reving up the wheels.

Don’y wanna offend anyone, but these cars are for city and they suck at off-roading. Subaru forester is 10x better than an x6

      anarhy09 You are right, but weather like this you have maybe 10-20 days in the year. The other 340 days I like to have a more sporty car. And this „lifestyle“ SUVs can fulfill this better in my opinion than the cars you have named. German Autobahn with 260 km/h is a hell of a fun in the X6. Clearly, if a car is good in going fast, it have to suffer in terms of offroad capabilities.

      I use snow tire on my two X3, the wife and I. With big thread. Not those winter sport crap. I learned that lesson on my old 328i. The dealer insisted on Pirelli winter sport. Worst tires I have ever had up here in Canada. Now I use Pirelli Winter Carving Edge. Never listen to the dealer that says you need speed rated winter tires. And be ready to go to a tire shop if there insistent on only being able to put speed rated tires on. You need proper winter tires. It’s got to have big wide lugs to go through big snow.

      Paul L I have now my second X3 E83. First I had the 2.0d, now I have the 3.0d (still searching for a 3.0si with manual gearbox, but it is hard to find one in europe). I love the E83. As my company car I have leased a F25 BMW X3 xDrive20d with manual gearbox, but I like the E83 more. The gearbox on the F25 is bad and not very smooth. No comparison to the manual gearbox of the E83. However the new G01 X3 is a completely new step forward. A much bigger step than from E83 to F25. Sadly no manual gearbox available anymore.

      I have read about the plastic gear in the transfer case. My Dealer meant, this could not be the problem. Maybe he lied.

      As I bought my X3 E83 3.0d last year, for the third time I had problems with the transfer case. I changed the oil of the transfer case, which did not helped. Then I changed the tyres (Discoverer Cooper Sport) against new Continental 4x4 WinterContact tyres (recommended from BMW) and since then up to today (5000 km and 3 Months) the problem is away.

      I do not know how to describe it right in english, but I have read, if the extend of all 4 tyres is not exactly the same, the transfer case constantly tries to compensate this different extend on the tyres, which confuses and quickens the wear of the whole system. BMW recommended tyres assure, that this extend is perfectly the same on all 4 tyres. Maybe this makes sense.

      In my opinion, DSC completely off ( DSC press for 5 seconds) and full throttle will make the tires crazy spinning. Moreover, will allow half of the tire spinning with not actuation with the " electronic lockers" that these vehicle have. I'm not 100% sure, it is quite difficult make repetitive test, more in snow.

      CARS EXTREM In reply to PABLO JORGE

      PABLO JORGE Maybe, but the snow was quite similar. You can see that at the second attempt the wheelspin was not stopped, which did not take momentum to go up the hill. In my opinion this has helped a lot. Only ASC Off is unfortunately not possible. You can select between everything on, half on and completely off.

      Last winter I took my x1 sdrive on dunlop winter tires 3d; through deep snow like this and after driving away the snow layer become a bit deeper, the car started to loose momentum, I was just about to bog dow with system on Traction mode. But then I long pressed the esc button and turn the dsc off, and it immediately began to pull. Keeping the rpm above 3000 rpm in first gear proved to work perfectly through 20cm of snow and like 10kmph due to very tight spaces. Dsc doesn't let the wheels spin fast enough, and in deep snow you need to do that for maximum traction. Of course if you are in a AWD car with winter tires you can go through either way.
      Driving at low speed, below 50kmph is easy with systems off as the car is predicable, but after you get past the bad road conditions you can turn them back on.
      I wonder if those who comment here have actually tested dsc off before speaking.
      Yes theoretically friction between surfaces reduces friction coefficient, but it applies to materials not to anything, and for snow there seem to be more factors involved. I think in mud the same thing happens.
