^^ What he said..
Mainly it will destroy your rear sub-frame and differential. I'd like to smack the guy who said an E36 chassis can take more than the M3 motor can throw at it. That's pure BS. The E36 chassis is a bit "whimpy" for a BMW. I've destroyed the hell out of my diffs and sub-frames and I don't drive like a moron, I track the car properly, they just don't last. American muscle car's with a super stiff chassis and sub-frame are more suited for doing burnouts. BTW in my opinion burnouts and donuts are a waste of time/money and look stupid anyways. The only newer BMW I've seen that can eat up the abuse is the MCoupe. The only reason my car lasts through the abuse I put it through is because I have about 100lbs of reinforcements welded in.
Also, the stock BMW clutch sucks so bad it's laughable. Try to do a burnout in a 318 and the clutch will just fall to peices. It's not that the engine can't produce the power, it's just that stock BMW clutches are made for comfort (slippage) and not for performance, it's pathedic.
