Few clarifications, since some folks seem to take things literally here .
I said smart expensive car owners never do launches because that's the truth. That doesn't mean nobody does launches.
And on the subject of launches, a launch by itself is not going to break anything, but axle hop certainly can. And you never know if it's going to happen. A catch 22.
And just because car has launch control doesn't mean warranty will cover any abuse derived from the feature; simple common sense. Just like the car is track ready, but track use (which is abuse) is generally not covered by any warranty. Or your regular insurance, for that matter. It's like saying a gun manufacturer is responsible if you kill somebody because that's what guns are made for.

Just like I said, anybody abusing his/her car should assume it won't be covered by any warranty. If they can get away with that, great. But don't assume it will, and be financially ready for the fallout. And that also goes with modifications, especially tunes, since they're irreversible. Again, if you want a car to beat on, an M3 is not a smart choice .
