Jeff- Amazing how those little things will bite you. On level ground at stoplights with manual transmission cars, I have the habit (good or bad), of sitting in neutral with my feet off the brake pedal and clutch pedal. First time I did that in my 575M, the car would not go into 1st when I hit the upshift paddle. Same thing as you discovered, nothing happens without the brake pedal being firmly depressed.
Present: 575M 135171
Past: Dino 246 GT 02984, 365 GTB/4 14009, 308 GTS 25125
Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
