How about any "slipping" -- have you noticed that? Usually that is the classic sign of a failing clutch. The signs you mention remind me of a badly adjusted clutch, or a clutch in need of adjustment back when you had to do that sort of thing to a clutch. Now it is supposed to be self adjusting I believe. There is also a known problem area with BMW M/T's - the "clutch release valve". You did not mention how many miles -- perhaps it is just time to redo the thing, they don't last forever and if you got 90-100K miles out of it you are doing very well.
