Question/Problem

Us Bmw drivers are spirited drivers i am also now i have a question when i am driving around normally then occasionally redlining the car i see its fine and sounding good but when i get to my locatinon and stop the car when i go outside i smell a funny burning type of smell not like tire smell but maybe like electrical or something in the engine i usually smell it strongest is in the front wheel on the drivers side, it dosent always smell but when i drive spirited it does. Any ideas on what this could be? Please help Thanks!

Maybe you burned your clutch. That occurs when you hold on the clutch pedal too long and it just slips when you slam on the throttle. The clutch just overheats, burns and the smell comes from the front and fills the interior. The smell doesn't go away for a good couple of days.

If this is the problem, you should brush up on shifting techniques. I doubt it's the brakes. You should have to overheat them a great deal to make them smell. If it's not your tires, it's your clutch for sure.
