DCT Reset

This may sound crazy but is there anyway to reset my E92 M3 DCT tranny? Lately (not always) when I start from a dead stop the car really slams into gear (sort of like the old SMG in the E60 M5).

I really don't want to have to go to the dealer but if I have to it's still covered under warranty.

Thanks!

You might want to look into a DCT tune from one of the forum vendors. Would not only 'reset' it, but also improve it on every setting.

I don't think there is a way to reset it like the e46. Maybe via inpa cable but not sure. I wouldn't mess with it anyways you don't want to give them a reason not to cover it under warranty if you end up needing a new transmission.

Its been said that it's the same as the E46 M3 SMG rest. I don't have any proof of it though:

Go over 40mph
release throttle
put in "N"
pull back on both paddles for 15 sec
put back in gear and drive as the system adapts

Get new software installed - it was covered by my CPO warranty and it really worked...

Do you know what software version you are running? Is there anyway for me to check what version I have?

Is there any consensus on if this does, in fact, work on DCT cars? Thanks!
