Yaw Sensor

Does anyone know the manufacturers of the Yaw sensor? Where is it situated on the car?

I'm pretty damn sure that it's actually mounted just below your gearbox, underneath the "slidey" storage area in the center console.

There's a little white box on mine with Bosch written on it, and I was wondering what it was.

Take as many pictures in as high a resolution as possible... they're bound to come in useful

For the stability/traction control I presume.

I spent a 1/2 day at Silverstone with Toyota and they had an Avensis that you could turn the Yaw sensor off and on in, turn it off and a scandinavian flick put the car into a fantastic spin, 2 or 3 times round on the car park there, leave it on, same flick and the car just squeels and turns almost back on itself, apparantly they reckon that the traction control, yaw control etc in the Avensis was good enough that if you took over the top evasive action on the M25, you could turn it round at 65mph to face the other way and carry on driving, not sure whether I would prefer slewing into a trailer at 65mph or end up driving into oncoming traffic.
