I have ordered my new 2019 S63 to replace the car that I just had totalled. They told me I can expect delivery in April now - which is great, as they originally told me June. Is there a "Race Start" setting or option - or do you just press brake, then accelerator, then release brake?

That's aewsome. I am about to take deliver (in April) of my replacement 2019 S63. Can't wait!!

Is there a "Race Start" setting, or option - or do you just depress the brake, press the accelerator, then release the brake?

I didn't see a "Race Start" option anywhere on my original 2019 S63

Race start as you stated, depress brake and accelerator and release brake. It can be used in any driving dynamic as long as the vehicle is up to temperature otherwise it will not activate.

MBUSA response was to send to dealer to deal with any issue. This is the dealer's response after 2 weeks with my car: "The response from the AMG engineer was there are a lot of different factors that can be attributed in to getting these specific 0-60 times. Fuel used is generally 95 octane, outside temp and track temp, wheel spin, etc. These test basically are performed in excellent conditions on a closed course. At this time there is no other test or repairs that can be performed on your vehicle."\

What I don't get is how I was able to do the same time in the span of 3 months with changing variables, rain or shine. 560 4matic owners are going faster than my car
