i started this tread because i was just to exited about discovering i have LC on my car.

Hold back the down shift paddle in 1st (foot on brake), the gear indicator will flash and beep, stomp the gas.

OH MY GOD!!!!!

i just tried what you posted in my 03 coupe and i almost had a heart attack when i herd some beeps and the i got the auto light on and a red light that looks like a small Dino chart.

i tested if this was LC and it is...

i put it in sport mode and put the left pedal down and slammed the gas and oh my god the car jumped and changed gears in a way i had never experienced.

i haven't tried it on the 04 coupe but i don't think it will have it. the 03 coupe is my fiance and i drive the silver 04. (i think that the cars are going to have to change)

i want this 03 until i die.

it rocks!!!

i cant even express my excitement i think i have to start a new tread.

i originally answered a post on another tread and i got a reply explaining that only 02 coupe have LC. we have a 03 coupe and a 04 coupe. i tried to see if i have LC on the 03 coupe and it worked.

it is so, but so cool. the car comes alive and tells you that he is a Italian with racing DNS.

has anyone had some experience with LC?

it would be cool if we can test the difference in speed to 60 or 100 with and without.

I tried it...


are you sure this is launch control...I gave it a quick try since I was on a crowded road with stop lights each block....

Yes, it went into Auto/Sport/and the Cambio Light came on....

it appeared the car wanted to shift on its own, like in AUTO mode

did you use the paddles at some point or does the LC work in AUTO where it shifts for you?
I would have to agree with you Tim

the red light that comes on is a CambioCorsa warning light, detecting a fault in the system...perhaps, Willlie, you are just experiencing the performance of stomping on the gas?....If I take off MSP in Sport, I can spin the wheels and my car will take off like a rocket.....

is there something in the Owners manual in regards to Launch Control? My car is at the shop right now, being raised a bit, so I don't have my manual handy
