If you have an Automatic, holding down the brake while pressing the accelerator will limit the RPMs at about 2500-3000 can't remember which. It's not true launch control but it's a neat feature.

Theres plenty of youtube vids.

With a dct you turn off traction controle, aply the break, put in gear, floor gas, release break. Ghetto launch control. I don't have dct so I don't know if it works or if I said it right.

If you pull the rear door handle twice, the door will open! The rear passenger can actually exit on their own without having to have the doors unlocked.

Im not sure if the manual transmission has it but my automatic has it and I use it to my full advantage, helps with the delayed response beating people off the line.

Nah. With a manual the driver is the launch control.

Very true.
Makes you feel like your driving for sure. Rather than point and click..
