now Lotus are at it as well

soon side-stepping a manual clutch will be a warranty no-no as well:p

PistonHeads Headlines

"Although Lotus sells Exige Cup models for road use, the car's primary focus has always been the track, where the new launch and traction control system should come into its own. Launch control allows you to dial up the required revs then sidestep the clutch for quick getaways, while the traction control can be adjusted on the move to provide anything from an 'optimised' seven per cent tyre slip, to being dialled out altogether. A message display in the new instrument pack tells you what setting you are driving on.
Like Nissan, which was roundly criticised for offering a launch control system on the GT-R that voided the warranty if used, Lotus is taking a similar path, saying: "If the launch control facility is utilised, the warranty on related powertrain components is void."

Bmw do the same thing with the new M3 double-clutch transmission (DCT) gear box if you lunch the car more then 3 times it will void your warranty.
