My e34 had a clutch slave cylinder and felt nothing like the springy e46 clutch pedal.

Clutch Pedal Resistance

I have a friend with a 1999 323i who keeps complaining about his clutch pedal and how it pushed back when you push down to shift. I had a manual e34 535i and it never felt anything like the...

Could be that, and it could also be the guibo since you have a manual transmission, but if it was a serious guibo issue it would shake at almost all speeds, so I stick with my initial post.

Dinan chips aren't even that brilliant. They have been shown to only create power at upper RPM's vs EAT and Conforti which really give a bigger boost along the RPM range. Check with the e34 forum...

Starter is probably dead, but that still doesn't explain the no-spark situation unless the battery cannot hold enough charge, even with a jumper, to keep the car running. How old is the battery?

errrr. you don't really want to put lowering springs on stock shocks... I have also heard that bavauto springs are too soft and can bottom out if used with bilstein sports.

Check your brake hoses. Did you bleed the brake line properly?

The ABS sensor may be broken.

If your brake lines are ok, check the brake booster or master cylinder.

If the fan doesn't work at all, then it's most likely the fan motor. Do you hear the A/C compressor coming on when you press the A/C button?
