Squatting a 325 HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

Ok, so my friend was driving my car 325i, we were at a light. He did something where the back of the car dropped (suspension i guess?). As if it squatted. I don't know what he was doing... hitting the break, or steering wheel, or the gears... Point is he is refusing to tell me, and wants me to figure it out on my own. But I tried everything!! How did he do it??

Hmmm I think he held onto the handbrake and press the throttle...the car would squat at the back...

marss...you got to hold it up tight (button press) then let go of the brake pedal and touch the go pedal....the car will squat. Again, this would be my best bet....

unless oranges knows something I don't....
