A little worried about my M-DCT being in for its 1200 mile service

Spoke to the service advisor about my concern regarding incidents at other dealers where the transmission fluid was mistakenly changed with regular 6MT fluid with consequences. "Oh you have the dual clutch? You're the first one with that transmission we've serviced" Yeah, that wasn't very comforting to hear. But I was told not to worry because they've received many bulletins regarding this and that my car will be in the right hands. I certainly hope so.

Now, when I pick it up today, can someone post the detailed directions (or perhaps a link to the online manual) on how to proceed with launch control? I left my owner's manual at home and I would like to at least test out LC while I'm still near the dealership in case they somehow forget to enable the feature.

It's not dealer enabled. It unlocks after you hit 1250 miles. There is a whole subforum on manuals.
