Maybe now I understand why you have a severe case of hesitation and a rough jerk. I know some 550-owners like Dunderhi also mentioned the 2nd (BUT maybe for a 400hp 550 it is more understandable). Not a case on mine 100%. I know the power curve very well and can recognize each gear with top precision (as I love the push into the seat and can feel how it weakens with each gear, thus reducing my joy). (Ticks me off when I come out of a turn in the 3rd, for example)

Maybe that gives you more grounds to demand a fix, Needs (and others). Simply state that you demand your 535 to start out in the 1st gear (otherwise, why the heck have it in the first place?) and take a new 535 for a ride and show them how it starts in the 1st. I have used the same demand-comparison tactic with CA door lock delay issue and got a fix that I wanted. The dealer even thanked me for using such method (as otherwise they would be dumbfounded and would have to argue and question me endlessly to both parties' dissatisfaction).
