Big news (all that I know of) is that ALL US MY2000 E46 will get DSC as standard. (They will NOT get DBC, however.)<p>This info is from a new BMW lineup brochure that I picked up last weekend at a car show.<p>Brad D

They already have CBC (corner brake control).<p>Thanks,<p>Mofongo<br>

Well...if DBC does stand for Dynamic Brake Control, then it quite possibly may be something similar to Mercedes-Benz's Brake Assist, which applies full braking pressure when it senses a panic stop. It reacts faster than a human, since statistics show that most drivers don't hit the brakes hard enough in a panic stop. Just a guess thugh, i really have no idea what DBC is....<p><i>: Big news (all that I know of) is that ALL US MY2000 E46 will get DSC as standard.
