I didn't have it chipped or anything, but took it in for my first oil change (3000 mi) and they told my I had a recall on my software, and had to upload new one (for free of course).

Do you think I have launch control now? I didn't before....dont think

The revving when doing the launch control is real smooth and gets up quick. And it won't let it go past 3000. I don't know why it wouldn't work with S....

Luanch is nothing :)

Launch however, is when you take your car from zero forward speed to shit loads of forward speed. It usually involves heavy use of the pedal furthest to the right. In this thread the drivers have to suffer thru their launch with an automatic transmission.... The computer in their car does their "launching" for them. ;)

Yeah, it's not enough for those of us who have DSG to be able to shift faster than humanly possible, now we can launch too. All this means that even though we all have the same car on this forum and unless you're car is modded those of us with DSG can beat a Manual tranny into the ground. [owned] [kiss ass]

True, until you try for more than 250 HP through that tranny, because after that I'm told its DSGrenade

Yeah.. I know.

I like to play around I have much respect for the Manual transmission. But speaking of 250+HP What about Dragon? He's running more than that... Oh well, I don't plan on modding that much. Intake, Exhaust, APR chip... what's that like maybe 260HP? if that..
