As a point of reference, not all cars had a shim. I don't know how it was measured to determine if a shim was needed or not, but I've actually never seen one in person. I've done clutch jobs on at least 5 or maybe 6 different m5's. None had the shim.
Glad to see you're getting the problem sorted. This is not a common solution to your symptoms!
