Turned off DSC fully and did my first burnout. Man. That was bloody amazing. No idea why I haven't done it sooner!

A little bit disappointed that in the DCT there is no way to rev the car in first gear to do a controlled launch, other than to use launch control. Annoying, because I'm not doing it to launch, I miss being able to balance the clutch for a controlled burnout. Instead, you just have to turn off DSC and floor it from 1k~ rpm... unless there is a 'workaround' I'm not aware of.

US Millworks. It's been great. Super easy to install and has the perfect bumper clearance (in my opinion )
Thanks. Saw a couple of them on M2's today. Looks like a solid piece of kit.

Well I did see that someone with the old DCT on like a 135i I think said they found a way around some of the limitation of the DCT for launching. They noticed that if foot on the brake and then hitting gas the car rev slightly but then the car would stop revving and go back to idle. So they just started pumping the gas and each time it would gain like 500 revs then they would let off the brake when the revs were as high as they desired.

Now I have not tried this. I don't know if it works with our DCTs. I do not know if this is safe as far as wear and tear on our transmission or clutches.

If you try it let me know...

Example here.

Today however, I am getting my 1200 break in service AND my new M Performance exhaust installed in Pordenone. It will be ready at the end of the day and pictures and audio clips will soon follow.

Yup. Looks cool as hell but I'd be concerned with night time visibility as well as the state inspection sticker I have to place on the inside of my windshield.
