While AX for the 2nd time, my '03 330i hesitated badly while exiting a hairpin turn to a staightaway at a local AX. It almost seemed like it was starving for fuel. I half filled the tank, thinking that would solve the problem. For a total of 12 runs, the car hesitated badly, almost to the point of stalling, but regained power after a few seconds. This happened each time, at the same point, on exiting the same turn. I thought of taking it to the dealer, but they would be unable to reproduce the same driving conditions. The car runs fine otherwise. Has anyone else experienced this? Could it be a fuel pick up problem even with a half full tank? The car is still under warranty. Any ideas???? This is really playing havoc with my run times!

Did you disable the DSC before the beginning of each run?

Yes I did. Maybe I'll try the dealer.

i'm not quite sure what the problem you experienced was...but a word of advice, i would not walk into the dealer and mention anything about autocrossing the car...they will most probably use this as the reason as to all sorts of failures..
