Hi Guys, sorry to revive an old thread but i have a few questions. I have an '09 n54 DCT but could never get launch control to work, I read somewhere that this update would sort that out. I have a normal 335i and not the is, would this still work for me? any help would be appreciated, this is my first time attempting this sorta thing on my car.

Yes mine is a European E92 335i. It'll work for you but it wont make LC work if it's not working already. Do you have the kickdown button deactivated or blocked?

Make sure your engine is up to full temp and you've driven maybe 5 miles before trying. Put the car in DTC. Hold the brake. Slam the throttle to the floor. It should come on. If you feel the car pushing against the brakes then it hasn't engaged. Every time you start the car it monitors how far you have driven. I have made the LC work at the drag strip after having the car turned off for a few hours but still up to temp. It can be quite moody about when it lets you though. Sometimes in an exact same scenario it just wouldn't come on.

If you don't release the brake then it wont launch. Just let off the gas while still on the brake and it'll go back to idle. So you dont have to rape the clutch just to try this.

Hi Awsaws, thanks for the reply, I've tried everything but could never get it to engage, my buddy has a 2010 and he tried the same method he uses for his car and still no luck, any idea what it could be? The kickdown seems fine because it changes down to quite a low gear if I'm driving and i use it.

do you have a US car or European.

only the 335is had a DCT in the US. Europe i have heard there was some earlier years with a DCT, do not know the years.

the 135 had a DTt in it.

Have you ever had your software updated? WinKFP will pick the latest update for you or you can pick and choose the ZB# that you want to try. Use INPA and read your UIF as a starting point and to know exactly what software version you're presently using and what your options are.
