2) Place rear tires on ice.
3) Press gas pedal.

Remove the CDV, turn off DSC, wet your tires significantly in an uphill position (motor oil works better) and let 'er rip. Why though?

EDIT: I just realized... automatic? Fuggetaboutit!!

Actually my bmw will spin out on dry pavement. Not always but it will with the dsc off. Kinda depends on its mood and if I dont have anything in the car. Turning sharp before gunning it helps too

I watched all the bmw "the driver" movies one night back to back and was headed up to town to get some cigs afterwards in case your wondering why I did it or how I would know....

I've had that experience before from a car wash (out of town, worst decision ever) that COATED what must've been the whole tire with that crap. I spun a full 180 in the middle of a (thankfully empty) 5-lane highway when I left. Scared the hell out of me.

1. Turn off DSC.

2. Put left foot on brake pedal.

3. Put right foot on accelerator and press to floor.

4. Look out passenger side to see the smoke show from one wheel.

5. Slap yourself for being an idiot.

DSC full off, transmission in SD, floor the brake with your left foot while feathering throttle with the right. Release brake when you wanna go. What you get in terms of wheelspin is what you get......175 lb/ft isn't muscle car territory by any means, nor is your car a front-wheel drive vehicle.

It helps if you ARE a burnout performing a burnout.... :-)
Don`t forget....that 175 lb/ft (engine torque) gets multiplied by first gear (around 4x), then again by the diff ratio (around 3x), then almost doubled (for a brief period) by the torque converter, so in reality, you`re looking at around FOUR THOUSAND lb/ft. at the wheels....er, wheel....that`ll get ya some tire smoke with an open diff....

Regards,
Bob

Lets not forget E46's have 4-wheel disc brakes. So you'd not only roast one tire, but the rotors and pads on that side as well.

Douse it in gasoline and throw a few lit matches on it.

It'll burn out, for sure.

When I get the 95 325i project car done Im going to shoot some burn outs and other stupid stuff with it. I can just imagine 300+ hp ls6 powered 325i being a blast to play with.

Actually, to be fair, I did a full burn-out in my little 323i just before it was time to buy new tires. Once I got it going (not an easy feat with four-wheel discs), it kept spinning just fine (with the water hose going ). But...mine's a manual, so it's pretty easy to get it to at least slip. In an auto, I doubt you'd get it to do more than squeek.
