Best way to launch a 335i AUTO

I'm curious to know what is the best way to launch an automatic 335i off the line.

Sport Mode Then Shift Into 2nd with triptronic at Max RPM. Always works for me best this way.

Ofcourse this isn't the best for the car, but it gets the job done..

Only if you rev it too high.. This is how I launch, it gives you an extra jump above just flooring it. Ofcourse you have to do some trials to see where your cars/tire/tunes sweet launch spot is. But once you have it, there is a nice advantage to using that method.

for all you guys who do not brake boost at say 1800 + rpm, when was the last time you won a race at a stoplight or a 1/4 mile track ? (note that mini vans do not count).
... also note i do not condone street racing.

many people find it better to shift at approx 6,500 rpm - not redline

first if u have an automatic and u dont break boost off the line your an idiot. Its basically the same thing as the MT guys dumpin the cluth. Sorta. All u gotta do is spool the turbos. Second if your worried about tire tread DONT RACE. Third make sure traction control is completely off. That means hold the DCT button for 5 seconds. And i shift at 6300-6500 rpm. I dont hold it til 7k or so.

Thanks for all of the responses people.

And no this is not for street racing. It was a friendly bet between my coworker (IS350) AND I (335i), but we will make sure we do it on a track.

It's not worth loosing my license or worth hurting innocent people.

Absolutely, you're at your peak power before you redline.
