Semi-touch automatic starts in manual

I have a new Smart ForTwo Brabus and I wonder if it is possible to change the Semi-touch automatic gear to start in "A" instead of "1"? It would be great to not have to click the button each time you start the car.

For the 450 in Japan there was special software that did just what you are wanting. Unsure if they have similar software for the 451.
