Thanks for the tips man! :cheers:BmwNut said:There are a few ways to test, but some are abusive. What I recomend is to pull the ebrake to the stop, and then try to start the car off with a normal 1k rpm launch. If it stalls, then the clutch is grabbing well. If it starts slipping then the clutch is worn. The M5 has a small clutch, and I havent tried this in an M5, so be careful. If it does start to slip, clutch back in as you dont want to fry the clutch. Remember too, dont try to force the car to move. Just try to start it from a standstill like you normally would with family in the car.
The second way is turn DSC off, and rifle a fast upshift from 1st to second and try to break the back tires loose. If they chirp it is grabbing, if they dont it is slipping. That is the abusive test though.
With only 15k miles on the new clutch it should be in good shape. Are there any symptoms of it slipping, or are you just looking to make sure the clutch is heathly?
