I've seen a couple of comments on the Unofficial E36 home page indicating that oil starvation during high speed turns is a common problem with the engine in the M3. The symptom exhibited is a loud tap coming from the engine.
Some people have suggested overfilling the oil by 1 quart. Others have mentioned a baffle.
Hope this helps.
