Hey guys, I just got my 1995 318i a few weeks ago, for only $4500!!
But anyways, its alright as my own first car.
Unfortunatly it is automatic and I wanted to know if it is posible to
burn out the tires in the auto?
also what is the button that says A/M on it for?
Can i drive the car like a stick? like push M and then put the shifter
in 1st and shift up as i drive?

Help!!!

Also e-brake slides? are they possible?

Thanks.

burning out in a 318 is hard enough! u can definately not do it in an auto.. lol, unless u throw some armor-all all over the rear tires....

yes, the a/m is for auto and manual... u can leave it in auto, or u can shift manualy with 1-2-3...

u can ebrake it,... but its not recomended.. u'll end up needing a new suspension.. and i'll tell ya, parts for your car ARE not cheap!

Actually yes, you can do burnouts in automatic on some cars. Put the car in neutral, press the brake and the accelerator pedals to the floor, put it in drive, and let go of the brake pedal. I could warn you about some of the damage you could inflict on your transmission, but you might just be better off seeing for yourself.

Uh no, Don't do this. 318's arn't powerful enough to burnout without damaging something really badly. Your tranny will EAT IT. If you are already rolling and the engine's at some 5,000 RPM, I gues if you punch it around a corner it can get the wheels loose, but unless you have an LSD and you do this too much, your inner gears of your diff will chew themselves to pieces and you'll suddenly wonder why you can't make the car move anymore.

Just wait until it rains and turn off ACS.

Yes you can do burnouts when it's drive, if you shift into Manual and drive 1. Punch it hard, just make sure you shift in time.

Punching it hard from a standstill isn't going to do it. Unles your tires are near bald and you are on some SLICK pavement, you need to be near the torque band to get anything spinning.

Just don't do anything that causes any sudden jolts of any kind, that's what tears up your car in a hurry

Unhappy

Wow.


Your first car and your main interest is burning out.
Spinning your tires:
1.) does not make you look cool
2.) wears out your tires
3.) does not make you look cool

Generally speaking, manually shifting an automatic tranny isn't terribly useful. Why would you do this? Does your car shift too soon at WOT or something?

I'm not trying to be an ass, but the first thing that came to mind when I read your post (how do I burn out, can I shift my auto manually, my first car, ...) the first thing that came to mind was 16-18 years old and male. Am I wrong?

You've got a cool car, don't ruin it. Don't put a folgers can in place of the muffler, install a 6' tall wing, or add oriental text characters to it either, please. Society and I thank you in advance

Not hard, you could still brakestand your car. Just hold the brakes down with your left foot maybe halfway, and slowly add pressure to the gas pedal. The front brakes engage before the rear ones, so just make sure you are braking hard enough so the front brakes are on and the rear tires are spinning.

A few things you need to know. Although I would never do this myself, here are a few things that would help.

Weight is a huge factor in getting your wheels to spin. So, find the smallest diameter wheel you can fit on the rear of your car, use a steel rim since they are lightweight. 2nd, find some old beat up tires that have been roasting in the sun since the damaging UV rays will deteriorate the rubber to a degree that they won't grip at all. 3rd, wet the pavement yourself, as spinning your tires in the rain doesn't give off any smoke at all, which is a waste of time and really stupid looking. You can use ammonia/bleech as well as that eats up the rubber and softens it up. On an auto, it's very damaging to the tranny, unless you do a brakestand, which will just wear out your rotors and pads. Usually the ABS will kick in and the brakestand will not work. I couldn't figure out how to do a burnout in even an M3 until I disabled the ABS system. The open diff Eurospec I drove had lots of grip from the RA1's, it's not that easy on a heavyweight bimmer w/ good rubbers. You may also want to remove as much weight as possible from the rear. Eg. removing your jack, spare tire, etc. It should make the rear tires spin easier.

Anyways, a word of advice, don't do it. You should better spend your time brushing up on the knowledge of your car and simply maintaining it as well as learning to drive it rather than something so pointless and damaging to the car.

BTW, I can do burnouts in a stock manual 318, I've tried it on my friends 318 LOL. He was good enough to let me abuse his car.
