Just picked up my new S3 DSG last friday, loving it so far! Tried Launch control in the recommended way on my old A3 1.8T DSG, all that did was pull against the brake - took it to dealer, and was told the particular 09 DSG box didn't support it. Fair game.
Tried the same thing on the new S3 (Long press on ESP (long press doesn't seem to make any difference on S3 - no ASR option it seems), S-Mode, brake hard down, rev to 3.5k), and get exactly the same thing. I'm sure I'm doing everything in the recommended way - is there anything I could be missing?
