    Sort of is already? if you press and hold sport for 5 secs it turns the ESP off. However if you wnat the ESP on/off put to another button independant of the sport well I'll leave that to the techies

      apparently it will prove very difficult because of the can-bus system. i wouldnt even try it mate.

        And just to add to that Andy - the probs I've been experiencing with the car's CAN bus over wiring of an after-market head unit I'd advise to leave things the way they are!

                  I think there should b a big fat round sports button on the dash rather than that little square 1. and a seperate one for the traction control.

                    so it really turns the esp off wen ya hold it for 5 secs? and i think the car would be a lot better with the sport button on steering wheels plus a button for traction control

                        even standard,the car feels so much more alert with traction off.
                        i turn it off every time i get in the car,rain or shine!

                            i think your bonkers
                            imagine the cost for anything other than fwd
                            im not sure how the stage 1,2,3 boys and girls cope with traction but i find the traction control isnt needed if you get to know how your car copes.
                            the only time i leave it on is if is sheeting in down or snow.
