I can see why many of us have zero issues with hop or DCT issues. BMW must go crazy with warranty claims they KNOW in their gut is from abuse.

Guys, nothing wrong with picking at a car's flaws, but asking it to do what it wasn't and shouldn't be designed to do seems a bit odd.

Not saying you don't get wheel hope in other circumstances, and not saying this isn't a great product. I'm saying this is a bad example of one has to do to get wheel hop.

i agree not trying to say i beat my car. just suprised when people say it doenst happen. it has never happened without me trying to induce it. i dont go to the track and get wheel hop so this fix serves no purpose for me. i manage the traction circle with my feet and hands.
