Hi M Fifty,

He thoroughly checked the car, including a test drive - according to him, everything was mechanically correct - the hop I was getting was from traction control intervening.

Turning off the traction control diminished, but didn't eliminate, the wheel hop.
Changing the tyres fixed the issue, and as a bonus, improved a whole bunch of other things into the bargain

Like I said, Continental make some good tyres ... just not the ones that BMW used to fit to the M2 at the factory.
