Question: I am gearing up to buy an M2.
Hearing some of the complaints about the MT in the M2's 6MT, it reminds me of the 135i I am currently driving (later model N55).

On my 135, I added the stopper that reduces clutch overtravel and I love it - Best $10 you can spend on one of these cars if it overtravels (and apparently the M2 does).

I also uninstalled the clutch delay valve, which if you're not familiar, only allows fluid to travel through a pinhole - the net effect is the clutch engagement is mushy and vague - probably to appeal to masses who are not very experienced with MT.

Is anyone aware whether the M2 has a clutch delay valve?
If so, removal of it should make clutch engagement much more defined.
