Otherwise it may only be for m-sport models.
Im assuming it’s because I was in sport individual. I’ll try again in a few days with the car in sport mode instead.

And yes. Brake pedal is all the way to the floor and throttle is past the kick down button

Maybe outside temperature can be a thing?

It worked for me at 5* Celsius as you can see in the picture. In sport mode.

I tried at 49F too a few days back. But I was in sport individual mode then too. I might try it today if the conditions are right. I’ll be in sport mode. It’s around 33F here. Let me check and report back

Tried it out just now. Outside temp was 33F. Car was sufficiently warmed up (driven for more than half an hour and engine temp was midway between hot and cold).
Put car in sport mode, turned DTC off, gear shifter in M/S, brake pedal to the floor and throttle to the floor (past kickdown button). Car revved to just over 3000 rpms but there was no launch control or checkered flag indication at the bottom of the live cockpit. So my car definitely doesn't have it. Car has done 3300+ miles.

If your manual brings up launch control you have it

I was going to say... that would be odd considering Sport+ is on the F30, and not reserved for a specific trim level.
It is in the US

F30 and G20 don't have sport plus in the US with 330. Only 340 has sport plus. Might be possible to enable with coding

the next time you start the car and press sport, it will automatically go to sport plus, without you have press it twice
Wow... so many different ways are being explained. All I did was move the shifter into manual turn off traction control press down on the brake and put the pedal to the floor. I never thought a 4 banger would rip out the hole like it did😁😁💜
