The ESP system is there to help keep you safe
. It's cutting in as it's probably detecting loss of traction at the wheels
. You can never really turn it off as such but by pressing the little button it slacks things off a lot.

Just out of interest what tires you running?

Isn't this the same issue that Nick and a couple of others are experiencing with lowered cars? Checking tyre pressures (and make!), tread depth and wear levels is the first place to look though.

I have that issue since going to 19" wheels. But its when taking long bends when pressing on a bit and not around roundabouts etc.Turning the ESP off numbs it down somewhat like Ryan has stated.
