I read over the manual last night. Had some nice stuff in it. I like the shift lights in the HUD. I also liked some of the new features of the A6 trans, this thing is gonna be sweet.

Has anyone read about the use of launch control for the manual? My ZR-1 is really simple and I've heard that the ZL-1 is somewhat different....

"Launch Control is only available
when the following criteria are met:

. Competitive Driving Mode is
selected or any of the PTM
modes are selected.
. The vehicle is not moving.
. The steering wheel is pointing
straight.
. The clutch is pressed and the
vehicle is in first gear.
. The accelerator pedal is rapidly
applied to wide open throttle.

The Launch Control feature will
initially limit engine speed as the
driver rapidly applies the accelerator
pedal to wide open throttle.
A smooth, quick release of the
clutch, while maintaining the fully
pressed accelerator pedal, will
manage wheel slip."

Pg 9-48

Thanks...I looked for that and missed it, my bad.....the ZR-1 holds the RPM @ 4000 and if you "Power Shift" the engine does not rev beyond that which prevents running into the rev limiter or as in the old days, you wind up with misc parts bouncing off of the pavement....sounds like the ZL-1 is either the same or very similar....can't wait to try it out.....
Thanks, Scott...

Agreed, really like "format 4" on the HUD . Wonder if it will be possible to do some sort of software upgrade on the standard HUD to include 'format 4'?

Great link. In the back, it listed a web site for purschasing service manuals. I went on the site, and they aren't available until June, but they can notify you when they're ready if you wish. The cost is $200.00. For me, it will be a worth while investment, because this is the last toy I'm going to buy.

mmarx82 02-07-2012 05:28 PM

I'm gonna talk to my dealer and see if a cant get it thrown into the deal...

You have to love an owner's manual that plainly references "track events," "drag strip use," and even gives you instructions for bedding brake pads.

I can't wait to see what 580HP feels like on the back straight at VIR!

Great find, guys!!! Already saved!!

Got to love having the manual before you even get the car. :sm0:

On page 9-37, I wonder under what condition is the first to fourth gear shifting required? I wonder if I could even remember to do that... :laugh:

you won't have a choice. it will block you from shifting in to 2nd which will force you to shift in to 4th.

From 9-38...;)

This message will come on when:
.
The engine coolant temperature
is higher than 76C (169F).
.
The vehicle is accelerating from
a stop and going 24 to 31 km/h
(15 to 19 mph).
.
The vehicle is at 21 percent
throttle or less.


And you don't have to remember...it won't let you. It physically locks out 2 & 3rd gears.

are you sure it locks out 3rd? I thought it only locked out 2nd.

well..yeah...I get that. But in locking out 2nd since you're already shifting that way, the normal reaction would be to shift to 4th. My friends GTO locked out 2nd but you could still shift in to 3rd. I guess they changed it? :iono:

and btw....

I don't believe the ZL1 will be using the "Skip Shift" ... It is used with the LS3 to avoid the GG tax.

But for what it's worth the skip is a non issue with the LS3 if you keep the RPM up a bit. I think I've hit it maybe a half dozen times in two years due to traffic. You can also double clutch to avoid it ...

Mr. Wyndham 02-07-2012 10:05 PM

Oh, and it would appear that ZL1 has a huge combination of chassis controls....

You can turn Stabilitrac & Traction Control Off, On, or just Stabilitrac On...

You can select MR Tour or Sport in any of the above modes...

And you can enter PTM, which gives you 5 more tailored settings for the track.


BMW eat your heart out! J.K. :sm0:


EDIT: No mention of no-lift shift, though....unless I missed it...

LED Crazy 02-07-2012 11:47 PM

Don't forget to save this onto your iPhone or iPad. A digital manual is better than the physical one ;)
