Have you done a donut on your E90/E92?

Have you done a donut on your E90? Since the regular 3 series doesn't come with LSD, I'm not sure if it's even possible.

Of course you can. You'll just be eating away at one tire more than the other.

Just make sure you rotate those suckers and you'll be fine! lol

How?

1.) Turn the wheel to left,

2.) Rev the engine to 4k,

3.) then dump the clutch?

Maybe it will work in the wet from standstill but it surely doesn't work on dry tarmac. Use gravel or something. You end up spinning the inside rearwheel smoking. No LSD. Only maybe 180 degrees U turn max, but not a whole donut. Gravel or wet surface. Trust me I 've been drifting all over the place with E36/E46/M/E87/E90/92

That movie is not my definition of a 'donut', that's what I call a (uncontrolled, the first time) 360.EDIT: THe car doesn't move fluently because of no lsd.

This is what I call a donut.

I think they call it Jelly in the US. Plus you then get the problem that a jammy donut isn't donut shaped. It's just round.

You can't do jam donuts in a car - even with LSD.
