You pulled the motor for the carbon buildup issue? Geez man.

That's hardcore. Good that you took the opportunity to put in a new clutch though.

We are located about 13mins from Saratoga Ny, yes the motor and trans were pulled everything was polished to look brand new then all reinstalled the clutch was about 4mm before the rivits not bad but the pressure plate had heat damage. The reason we looked cause on the few cold days we drove it upon first start up it was a bit stiff to shift and clutch pedal was not smooth she is all new now. We operate out of a small shop now, we were in a 13bay shop in Castleton Ny, as well as a 4bay in Averill Park NY, but we have done some big things 90% of our business for the past 2years has been exhaust fabrication, welding, aftermarket modifications and installs. $45 a hour for labor $65 per hour for Fabrication. We just try and focus on quality not quantity. Drove the M5 in the snow storm Friday! left it overnight did not want to risk driving her back, but now that everything is like brand new she is much quicker and responsive and we get 18.0-21.5 mpg's on the back roads/city. I might be a bit in love with her but I belive she is a 9 out of 10 only one small spot I will have to hit with 2kgrit and buff on the front bumper size of a quarter were something scratched her.
