    I have heard of this "launch mode" of the SMG II, and the article is right, I also heard that after 12 uses of this lauch mechanism, you void warranty

    Yes, but not until you've already installed a new gearbox.....

    Re: m3 smg secret...

    Why do articles about this keep appearing now? The article in your post references something written in January of 2003 in Popular Science.

    This is not only old, but it isn't even news, or a secret. The M3 SMG II has launch control. It is in the owner's manual.

    Here is a link that shows the date of the Popular Science article for those who don't believe me: Old stories die hard

    I have seen plenty of video's of M3's with launch control. Im sure it's a lot of fun but you put a lot of wear and tear on your tranny not to mention you eat up your tires. Couldn't BMW have done more thinking when making this feature? Im learning now more so than ever before that BMW does a lot of stupid stuff.

    Re: m3 smg secret...

    What more exactly would you have wanted from this sort of feature? It does the job as intended. I've tried it a couple times and it works fairly well.
