Its not good for it, but it shouldnt ruin it. I've got an old beater truck that will light up the *tire(only spins one) all day long when I power brake it.

Read your manual and follow the instructions to completely turn off your DSC and traction control. That is your problem. Your car has plenty of torque to spin the tires.

The one time I tried to accelerate hard without the DSC/Traction on the tires were lighting up wildly on only moderate gas pedal action. No need for holding the brake down. Just hit the pedal when the car is standing still and the tires will easily light up.

Stop bashing your car and learn how to use it and you'll be much happier. And start saving your money for some new tires.

I think we're getting away from the fact that this guy is still trying to spin the front wheels. Not sure how many tips are going to help him here, fellas.

Did you buy a BMW to make lines on the road or did you buy it for what it is? A quality European automobile that offers style, comfort and at the same time luxury and performance.

It won't let you neutral slam it, nor would I recommend it if you could. Hell, the car won't even let me put it into Drive if im in Neutral and at a complete stop, you have to press on the brake first.

First off, he was originally a trans am owner. That explains most of this thread.

Second, it answers the question of why his BMW is an automatic, the majority of F-bodys (that's firebirds and camaros to those not familiar with the domestic body codes) are automatics. My best guess is most F-body drivers don't have the mental capacity for stick.

Third, in most trans am/camaro social circles, it's age old tradition to gather around the old trailer park and do smoke shows while your buddies throw back a few Old Styles. It's also used as a mating ritual, where the male will destroy as much tire as possible in order to attract the attention of the opposite sex.

Why the f*&k do you want to spin your tires? What a waste! Every time I take my '87 Mustang GT to the strip I wish to hell that I had traction control!

We're not stuck up, it just happens that most of us are just that much better than everyone else. Not our fault. Having a BMW though, I think thats just a coincidence.

I'd still be stuck up BMW or not.
