With ASD, both wheels will keep spinning if one wheel loses traction. With ASR, the brakes will engage on the wheel that loses traction thus allowing the wheel with traction to do its job. The ASR system is an enhancement of the braking system and requires a lot, I mean a lot of mods. For example, all your speed sensors need to be changed. I think your car has three, you will need four. You will need a whole new wiring harness to accomodate the extra idiot lights on the dash. You will need a whole new ABS/ASR control module. Okay you say your C doesn't have ASD? I bet you a buck it does. Still, get rid of the C, buy an M
