when i cornering one way the car feels like it is trying to brake but doesn't do it the other way? has anyone else had this problem?

It’s probably the electronic diff (XDS) having a funny half hour.

Could be a sensor problem, uneven tyre wear or wildly different tyre pressures across the front “axle”.

The system used the cars brakes, does the car pull up in a straight line? If it doesn’t you might have a calliper or brake pad problem.

You could have a (careful) quick corner with the ESP/ASR/TCS/ESC/whatever-it's-called disabled and see if it makes a difference.
But In the 6R, the ESC light will illuminate when the ESP is helping out. Not sure how this is for the XDS and the 6C though.
