I was just wondering what the final word was about the clutch slipping (I'm going to have them take a look at mine next week hopefully).

I know that mine slips under hard acceleration gear changes where other cars normally don't.

Also, to anyone with the new clutch: is the the performance difference really that big? Does it help with the quick shifting? Tell all. ;)

Just wanted to keep this topic alive and let folks know that my M5 with the clutch problem is still in at the dealership (a more competent one this time); they're ordering a new clutch that should arrive in a day or two. I'll let ya know if it's a different part, and how the new performance is.

Confirmed by test driver: mine slips. They're going to order the new friction plates, etc. I'll let you know if it affected other bearings as well.
