Does it make sounds at low speed when turning, for example turning sharply into a parking spot? That would indicate CV joints going bad on the output shafts. These usually make a popping/crunching...

If your pedal is hard and not applying the brakes just before you start the car then like Herb mentioned it is very likely a leak in the brake booster.

Do you realize the dealer charges $833 for this? Tischer "only" charges $667. :)

They tend to go for $100 to $150 on eBay.

(1) It's believable if the previous owner was hard on the clutch. You have a lot of power and torque running though the clutch not to mention the 6er weighs 2 tons.

EBC are not good pads, I would avoid them. I have no idea why so many people recommend these. Maybe it's the Brits trying to promote their home grown pads?

These two pics from eBay show the clockspring (round unit) and the angle sensor (within the the backing plate that the clockspring attaches to).

Over $4K if you bought the parts new from the dealer plus a ton of work to get the harness and programming upgrades working. About $3K if you buy parts from eBay.

I think you took apart the clockspring and not the steering angle sensor, which I think is behind the clockspring in that "plate" that the clockspring attaches to.
