I have a y2K M5, and am 6'4" tall, so removing the clip definitely provided some benefit for me, as it gives an extra 2+ inches of seat travel. Here's how I removed it. Start by moving the driver's seat all the way forward, and then tilt it forward. Open the rear door, and get down on your knees so you can reach in. The seat travels on two "tracks." One closest to the door, and one closest to the middle of the car. At the very BACK of the inside track, you should find a metal piece. Simply pry it up with a screwdriver, and throw it away.
