Condensation from a/c usually is on passenger side and will only happen if there's a blockage in the drainage tube. Sorry to disappoint, but it does not mean you're driving hard (else M3s would be drenched after track use) but rather that you need to clear the a/c drain.

: : I recently purchased this 97 M3 Sedan. I went around a off camber on ramp( pretty aggressively ) and I had water pour onto my gas pedal and foot when the car was mid corner. I'm sure there are many possibilties that would cause this but I would like to know if anyone has had this happen before and what would be the best way of finding out what caused this to occur.

: Here's the deal. It's condensation from the air-conditioning unit. I have a '96 M3 and when I push it hard going down a fabulously curvy hill in the heart of my community, sometimes water projects itself, from under the air-conditioning unit, onto my feet. Same thing used to happen in my '93 325is. Doesn't happen often, but does if I pull some G'z after I've had the air-conditioning on for an extended period.
