Could it perhaps be low tread on your tyres and/or not very grippy tyres ? see if changing to known grippier tyres solves your issue better? If you are anywhere around here/West London/Heathrow/Slough, then do pop into Bird's garage in Iver where they do uprated differentials etc.

Cheers, Dennis!
There is not much of a difference between the 530 and the 535, the 3 litre engine is alot better on fuel and enough power to use it as a every day run about, its runnin smooth as ever and i wanted the manual gearbox which i found difficult sourcing when i was looking last year. I would rather get the m5 than get the 540i as the next car its just as thirsty!! the runnin cost is there with the m5 but come on the smile that machine will put on your face every time you hit the loud pedal
