Mein Auto: 2007 335i Coupe
Clutch on 2008 M3

Just traded in my 335i for a CPO 2008 M3. Loving it so far. So much more fun to drive than the 335i. I feel like the clutch is very different though. When I bought it they assured me that everything was working fine but it doesn't feel quite right to me. It almost feels like its sticking, but it doesn't stick. Sorry, but its very hard to describe. My 335i was by far the easiest shifting car I've ever driven and you barely had to feather the clutch at all. Maybe I was just spoiled by that and just have to get used to a harder clutch to drive. iDrive says I need to have the brake fluid replaced so I'm thinking about taking it to a different dealership and seeing what they say about the clutch. Any thoughts?

I am not even sure what you have problems with. "Feels like it's sticking, but it doesn't stick"? What is sticking or isn't sticking?

The M3 clutch is one of the easiest to operate and feel. If it doesn't feel right, there is probably something wrong with it.
