Launch control does not add a menu. You've already got it, it's just not as spectacular as the Euro version. Go here to read more: https://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e60...ions-pics.html

Hey rob. I believe they are referring to being able to view your current software once you are already in the program.

There isn't an additional menu for launch control. It is inherently built into the car when Dsc is off and you are in S6.

If you do a search or rummage through the stickies there Is a thread pertaining to it.

Launch Control Instructions:
1. Engage M Mode
2. Turn DSC OFF
3. Select " Maximum Shift Ferocity" (s6)
4. Hold selector forward
5. MASH gas pedal to the floor
6. Release the shift lever
7. Make alot of noise and tire smoke, and then eventually move on down the road at a high rate of speed
8. Shift at redline

RPI Scoops, CF delete, Euro SMG Software (Ver. 3)

Yeah I got that, I didn't know if there was a menu on iDrive that showed me which SMG version I was running:
M5 US
7840483 (ver 1)
7841402 (ver 2)
7842208 (ver 3)

Haha i never thought to look to see where this is stored and if it backs itself up onto another module. The odometer goes to 4 modules and if one if off you get a temper light on the dash.

10. Start the car and enjoy your improved shifts! You may need to run the SMG adaption procedures
In INPA and DIS you can see the adaptation your smg currently has. You can reset them or leave them and/or wait for the new adaptations. This is optional however if your smg isn't running smooth after a few miles of driving should be the next step.

You can't. Its INPA/DIS that can tell you your current version. No new menu/hidden information menu.

It is intimidating at first however their is a lot of information on the topic and not hard once you are all setup.

The last two with the euro software should be the big difference, the smg will slip the clutch more to control wheel spin and auto shift for you at redline in LC mode even in S6.

So I got the BMW Standard Tools but it has WinKFP 5.1.0 from 2004? The place I got it from said it was the INPA tools 5.0.2 and that they're the latest (post from 6/15/11).
