The stock clutches suck. Mine took about one launch and over heated. It also was close to 100% friction material when I removed it for an M3 set up.

Your's could be worse off then mine was however. Try putting it in 3rd and just dropping the clutch andnot giving any gas. If it stalls right away your clutch is good, if it stutters for a little bit your clutch is on its way out.
There's a good chance your car still has the factory clutch on it if it's got around 80k miles.

I wonder if anyone else has though that a BMW isnt meant to burn out... ? I've been in many cars with people that I know can drive a car to its limits.. and they cant even let her spin from a stop... somtimes its just the car you have.... in my opinion...
I can only get my tires to spin for 15 feet or so... then they skip.. and take off.... and its all in a foward motion.... I also have 265s in the rear... a lot of rubber to be spinning...
I'd try the 3rd gear thing my self... its a good clue...

That would be your rear differential... that takes fluid.. but I have never heard of a case where the diff fluid would cause a stall...
