Launching on my 335D

Everytime i launch in M2 with brake boosting it always shifts it back into 1st when it takes off? anyone getting this problem? is it because i pushed the pedal down until it clicks?

Yes probably. That's the kickdown switch.

^+1. It's the kickdown switch. Try flooring it to (not through) the kick down & that should resolve it.

Renntech ECU Mod

Have been pondering the Renntech mod for my 2011 d, but was curious whether I would encounter problems with the dealer while under warranty. The distributor near me says its invisible, but he has a sales incentive. That's why the JBD is attractive.
