Ken get your buddy with a full size truck to pull the boat out of the water, and stand by for some interesting quotes and prices. I don't know the labor costs down there but I suspect they will be cheaper than up here, while the parts will probably cost more. While I have done clutches, etc. in domestic trucks I have never done one in a BMW so I can't speak from experience but I never really had to do anything to the flywheel. Since you burned yours out in a "single" episode I bet the flywheel is probably OK and you just need the other stuff. X3 MTs are probably not the best boat pullers (depending on the size of the boat) and this is one place where the A/T may do better. Trucks of course pull boats out of the water better than anything else.
