Do you have a Z8? If so be my guest and start one. I will not be signing up. How about a class action to reverse the horrible styling on the Z4? How about the dealers start a class action because they ARE fuming over declining sales.
How about a class action to take the CDV out of the Z8 or for all non M BMWs (or the later model M3s that have it)?
How about better brakes for the M5. How about some more negative camber for the front tires? How about easier to repair wheels?
Back to the topic here: wheres the proof that the clutch is too weak for the M5? I have yet to read real concrete proof. There a lot of incidents, true.
I had 24,000 miles on my 00 when I turned it in and we checked the clutch and it showed wear appropriate for 24,000 miles; my SA said it could go much longer.
look, 4,000 lbs + 400bhp + big sticky tires = you can wear the clutch out pretty fast if youre not careful with your shifts, especially when starting out.
I saw how many fellow M5ers were driving at a few meets: using the clutch to slow the car down while reversing out of a parking spot........
if you want a class action- go get a lawyer. I just hope you and the class shift with SMG like precision.
