Clutch?

Hi everyone I am new to here and also a 2007 m5 , I have had the car for 3 days and noticed when on a slight hill the car rolls either way against the gear I have engaged in. Also pulling away from stand still it Judders and to top tonight I went to pull out of a junction and it lunged forward and stalled. In my mind the clutch is shot took it back to the dealer and he had for 2 1/2 weeks and tells me this is how they behave. Help

Normally there's a second or two where the car would hold still if you're on a hill. Not sure about the juddering, may be the clutch is worn. If the car doesn't feel right, I would return it under the lemon law.

Hi thanks for reply. I took the car to a Bmw dealer and paid for a check and it has come up with 2 fault codes on the clutch. Took it back to dealer who who denies all and says this is how this car behaves so an independent report from a company called ace.org was done by dealer who says road test was how this car behaves but no print of from ecu like my report. Think I have been stiffed.

The car even on a slight hill will just keep rolling while engaged in gear , until you touch the throttle and then it snatches into gear.

Yes I test drove it but never went up any hills or inclines where the dealers garage is the roads are flat , don't get me wrong I love the car , I think the dealer is just filing me full of s--t and getting out of replacing a clutch , I had a 535d previous to this so I didn't no about the smg box .

SMG is a love or hate thing, but mostly needed to drive it on various road terrain to ensure before buying. How many miles?

lemon law doesnt apply for used cars, at least not on the large federal scale. the OP is also overseas in the UK.
