The beauty of a BMW is that it handles well without traction control, instead of using stability control to mask bad handling. Just remember, even on, it can't repeal the laws of physics. I suggest to the OP to attend some car control clinics put on by his local BMW car club to learn how to control the car in a proper setting.
^^ This. I just spent 2 days flinging the car around a track (Thunderhill Raceway), working the tires for all they were worth, and didn't light up the traction control once. I only fully disengage the system at autocross. High g's may be fun, but a smooth line and smooth inputs make for fast laps.
