Perfect description. Annoying and other cars dont do it....will check tire pressure but I doubt thats the cause.

I assumed there was a simple solution to this but no one seems to have an answer. And no it's not driver error, I'm launching at different RPM's and do the same slides in my E46.

This car does get a lot of wheel hop in comparison to many other cars. It is caused by the gaining and losing of traction rapidly. Not sure why this car experiences it more than some other cars do. It seems cars with independent rear suspensions get if far more than solid axles or older muscle cars that are really setup for drag racing.

I haven't done this in the M (in my Camry with it's shitty tires, sure), but I'm fairly certain that I fully enjoy my M3 in other ways that don't involve driving like the elderly.

My only true worry regarding this thread is that the OP is making comments that make it seem as if he commonly slides his car sideways on public roads and not in a controlled setting....I understand that he takes a precursory look before drifting around these corners and such, but really, it only takes one guy on a motorcycle or one pedestrial to ruin your day. Also, being in second and third gear and sliding around means that you'd definitely be going fast enough to ruin your day. I mention this because an acquaintance of mine slid his M3 around a corner while practicing drifting in second/third gear in a residential, lost it, and hit the sidewalk. About a grand in suspension damage.

Just be careful....

And regarding the post that if I'm getting wheel hop cause I'm doing it wrong...I'm all there some other way to do it? I never had the issue in previous cars.

And to clarify, its not wheel hop when sideways, its wheel hop anytime the rears spin...straight ahead acceleration with dsc off in the wet....Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang....sounds terrible, feels damaging. Trying to avoid it for now but doesnt seem right.
