No offense, but I'd seriously question your reading comprehension if you have read this thread and proceed to purchase an e46 with SMG. Or have you lost an arm and cannot shift a manual?

And of course what you're asking gets narrowed down, first by eliminating all here with autos (the majority).
Then next, most with manuals have never replaced their clutch and never will.

I've got both my original 11 year old keys and they're in great shape.

You're there and we're not. Best you go over all again.

Treat yourself to some sort of tray system where you can keep track of hardware.
