Driver customized factory options

Once more I ask for some free advice from the friendly vets here in AU. Specifically how can I change the Drive logic setting on my SMG? On start up it's preset to the second shift setting. After five and a bit months of ownership I find I like the third setting for daily driving. Is there a way I can change it so that I don't need to manually change it every time I start up?
Many thanks
Macky

Reset the smg system.

Drive around 60km/h and put the shifter into neutral then hold both shift paddles in for about 5-10 seconds and then let go and put back in gear. You won't get any form of notification it's been reset but it should do it and then it will learn how you drive and should remember to keep it in the 3rd setting.

Worked for me anyway when I used to have one.

So I'm coasting down the road doing 60 I throw it into neutral and hold down both paddles for 15 seconds whilst still coasting at 60? If this is a troll that gets me killed I'll haunt your ass! How will I know if it's worked?

Not 15 seconds more like 5-10, I used to do 10 seconds. But yeah 60 then into neutral, hold the paddles both in for 10 seconds, release and put back into gear.

Google SMG reset and you will see it's a common practise among M3 owners. Most are on US threads so they will probably say exactly the same thing but instead of 60km/h it will be 30-40mph.
