Question Launch control

Hi everyone
My name is Augusto and I am a brand new member of this incredible community
I have been reading a lot of the commments at different forums and I have to say Ive learned a lot about my BMW
Actually, I have bougth an E92 M3 sedan 2011, my actual car, and I still have my first BMW, a 2009 335 sedan
The fact is that I would ask the instructions, step by step, to learn how to use the launch control in my M3
The car came with the 7 speed double clutch transmission
Thanks in advanced for your help and hope to know about you soon
Best regards

Hello Augusto,
you should read the car manual but here it goes:
1. Power on
2. DSC off
3. S6 shifting mode
4. Stick held forward
5. Floor it! (and release stick to launch)

If you don't get the flag, you either used it too recently or you're not past the break-in period.
see attached a picture showing this process step by step
