E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

The only clutch adjustment is the ride-height of the clutch pedal....you can adjust it to be level with the other pedals.

The pivot bolt that the master cylinder uses to connect with the pedal is an eccentric...you loosen the locking nut and rotate the bolt to get the right height.

Sounds like you may have to replace the clutch..... maybe a previous owner put some funny parts in there.

Could also be a failing slave cylinder. I'd start off by bleeding the slave, then work from there
