    Now I know why it's hidden!

    The Hidden menu of course is what I'm referring to! In searching for the option to check oil level (which incidentally doesn't seem to exist on my M272 model), I must have hit a wrong button. Ended up with ESP and ABS turned off. At first, I thought something had broken, but eventually...
