I'm with BigHat - you could most likely leave the dealership using launch control without any issues whatsoever
Yup prob the case. I need to do some timed runs somewhere to see about the 20% or so of more useable/available power rumor that is unlocked upon service.
I figured they couldn't limit the rpm's due to safety issues, like needing to pass a truck and a driver fails to complete the maneuver and then the family gets to sue BMW for restricting normal function.
