Have you tried using launch control on your 4 cylinder BMW?

Assuming you have Sport+ with automatic transmission and launch control. Can you feel the difference in acceleration ?

Does it ruin your components if done regularly ?

What exactly is it for?

Yes I do it in my 320i all the time. It's similar to brake boosting and you definitely feel it if ya have any mods on your car. As far as ruin components, it'll definitely be no good if you're launching a few times a day. But it's nice having a boost from a stand still.

Can 100% feel the difference. I would say the wear is consistent with driving you car hard. I've had my car for over 4 years now and launched it more times than I can count.

Occasionally used to piss my girlfriend off but mostly used on track days.
