For those of you interested, I was surfing for some information and came across this graphic description of how there are TWO Launch Control modes in S6...

I did not go to the link but I'm guessing its about the two different modes. I don't think there is a burnout mode in the 04 M's. I have never tried a fast pedal push and a slow one. Just normal and launch control works great. Mine launches at 1800RPM I think the euro's launch at 3500 and may have both modes. I have tried to get the euro software with no success.

yeah that was it... haven't tried it yet.
I've just been driving back and forth to work, it's the end of the month, and cops are all around.

I posted a few replies on this topic a while ago, and in one of them I mentioned how I had two very differing experiences. Not coincidentally, it seems, I unknowingly activated the "racing start" vs. the "burnout" mode. Yeah, as the info states, the "burnout" mode is no joke and I spent almost all the revs in first gear just burning massive amounts of rubber. Great find, frw73!
