But anyway, here's a few things to check...
1) Check to see that your front anti-rollbar is still attached correctly at the ends and the pivots. Too soft at the front will cause the rear to step-out.
2) Check your rear subframe mounting points in the chassis. They have been known to fatigue and pull out of the uni-body, causing very strange handling characteristics.
3) Check for a seized or collapsed rear damper (shock). Too stiff at the rear will also cause it to get out of line. Also check the upper mounts (inside the trunk) to see if they're bad.
4) Check your rear tire pressures. Low pressure in street tires decreases their traction. Ask the E36 M3 guys what they recommend.
If nothing is wrong, then you're foolin'. You have a blower or turbo under the hood or something. ;-)
