Great 1200 Mile Service on a 2013 M3 E92

Just had my 1200 mile service done on my 2013 M3 E92, DCT, ZCP. Everything went great, they did the following:

1) Oil change
2) Oil filter change
3) Differential Oil change
4) Adjusted the fitment of my driver's door by a few millimeters. The door wasn't closing smoothly... and the door was not flush with the lower side skirt... it stuck out a little (2-3 millimeters). See pic.




Some thing else I found out...
I can confirm that launch control is NOT enable by some magic by the dealer. I had my service done with 1091 miles on the ODO, and launch control is NOT enable, even after my 1200 mile service. Sorry if this has been discussed already ... just want to clarify. I would assume that LC does come on automatically at 1250 miles... we will see...

My thoughts on giving the car the beans!!!!!!:
1) WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2) The car seems more smooth with gear changes (UP and DOWN) in automatic mode when driving in parking lots and neighborhoods. Might just be my imagination :-)

Regards,

At my 1200 mile service, my dealer gave me the free 500hp software tweak. Did your dealership forget to offer it to you?

Hahaha, I missed that one ... but man is it nice to be able to go over 5500 RPM, the car screams..
I used to own an S5, and the performance on the M3 just blows it away.
