I have a 97 M3/4 and have notice the same thing and you do not have to be jamming gears. I'm not sure what causes this but it seems to happen during very hot weather with controls set to auto. If you find out let me know.
Question: Does engine rpm have anything to do with it? Outside temp?
Under warranty the dealer replaced the computer module on my car that controls the fan speed. My fan would go to high speed on it on even on warm days reguardless where the fan speed was set.
It is 95+ here (so. cal)
: So there I am, middle of last week, sitting at a traffic light. My OBC says it's 108 outside, (yes, that can happen in October, but only in Phoenix) needless to say, I have my AC on. Feeling a bit frisky, I decide to get into the gas a little bit (cause I can). I watch the light for the oncomming traffic turn yellow and I slowly raise the RPMs up towards 2000. My light goes green, I side step the clutch (i know, i know, but i was feeling frisky) and the car lauches like a rocket. I wind out first gear, bang second, wrap that out, grab third, still going, 6000, 6200, 6500... I shut down, and notice that my AC just came BACK on... whats the deal, do these cars automaticly disengage the AC at WOT? or is my AC just cycling because it's low on freon
