    funky clutch feel

    I have an M5 to start, but that aside, lately my clutch has been giving this weird bumpy feel. It doesn't happen all the time but when it does it is like I can feel every little bit of engagement and disengagement. Almost like someone has put sand in the clutch and causing it to grind a little.
    Does anybody have any ideas? Really hoping that I don't have to replace the clutch right now

    How long did your clutch last after this started happening?

    Anybody know if I keep driving on the clutch in this poor condition if it will cause problems for any other parts?

    If the friction material gets thin enough, you could get to the point that the rivets are grinding into the flywheel. There's a chance this could already be happening. If you cut deep enough grooves in the flywheel you might have to buy a new one versus the option to have it resurfaced.

    good to know!! Really don't want to have to drop an addition 300-400 for the flywheel. Guess I will get this checked out soon.
