Can anyone help me how to use the launch control in the new e60 m5?

Thanx
Are you past the break in period (2000KM)? I heard from previous reviews you have to select S6, hold shifter forward then rev to 4000 and when ready release the shifter. Does that sound right?

Isn´t the break in period 5000 km?? :confused2

I wouldn´t do it till it`s past the 5k mark.

Totally agree. I have seen that you can go a max speed of 220KMH for short periods but did not know there was a linit on full throttle shifs at that point. Would make sense though.

Run in instructions: - first 2000km, not over 5500rpm/170km/h
- until 5000km, no max revs, no S5 or S6, no LC
max 220 km/h

or: RTFM (read the fu..in manual)
:hihi: :hihi: :hihi:

Are you driving the M5???
