2011 BMW X5M X5 M Launch Control How To Video – V8 BiTurbo – Road Test TV

September 5th, 2011 by Road Test TV

We took a 2011 X5M with a RENNtech Stage 1 tune and made an instructional video on how to use BMW’s launch control.

6 Easy Steps:

1) Engage “M Power” Mode on Steering wheel;

2) Move shifter left from Drive to Sport;

3) Move shifter forward from Sport to Manual Mode;

4) With brake depressed, Floor Accelerator until Checkered Flag appears in center of Instrument Panel;

5) Release brake, and

6) Hold on tight.

As you can see from the video, this 600 plus horsepower X5M accelerates with little drama as it rips to 60 mph (about 100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds and reaches 100 mph (160 km/h) in 9.7 seconds. Keep in mind that this X5M has a low boost tune only, and retains it’s stock exhaust and airbox. More power to come.
