e60 m5 smg and clutch solved

I had a smg pressure undershoot as well as a clutch activation deviation code. Car would kick itself into neutral once I came to a stop. I have solved and repaired the problem. I went to the dealer and bought clutch sensor, slave cylinder, relays, ball pin and electric motor that drives the smg pump. I then ordered a Sachs clutch elsewhere since it was a little cheaper. Replaced all these parts. Had car flat bedded to my local euro shop for clutch readaptation and smg unit bleeding. I must admit my blood pressure was high while waiting for the car to be programmed. Car came out ready to go. No flywheel needed. Stock clutch was still in decent shape but didn't wanna go back in later so I went ahead and changed it.. Throw out bearing was starting to get chewed up. Really dry and rough. I spent about $2000 on everything.
